Best Vest!

Project info
Aksel by Signe Strømgaard
my son
Needles & yarn

Playing with stripes ;-)

Heavily modified version.

So here is what I did:
I used I-cord cast on;
I didn’t cast of stitches in armpit;
I neither cast of stitches in front where in original pattern hoodie rib is worked - I knited those stitches as left part of front and again, picking those stitches as a right side of front;
For hoodie I picked around 74 stitches - I don’t remember exactly how much;
Then I finished selvedge stitches of armhole and hoodie by applying I-cord.

Stripes recipe:
5 rows of MC
1 row of CC1(red),
2 rows of CC2(blue)
1 row of CC1,
5 rows of MC,
1 row of CC3(white)

(april 5th 2011 update: unfortunately this piece doesn’t exist anymore. Dear husband put it in the washing ashine and it felted. I intend to knit this vest again, with superwash wool)
