Henry VIII vest
Henry VIII by Alice Starmore
Needles & yarn
US 2½ - 3.0 mm
Handspun Falkland, 2 ply
handdyed by me

I span 500g falkland wool, 2-ply, and dyed it using some silk colors (One Arty’s).

I only kept the fair-isle pattern, but I changed the shape : I took example on a sleeveless vest I have and love, and I adapted the stitches number to obtain the right measures.

The steeks are OK, and I’m now knitting the borders…very long work !
10th, june

Finished ! But I’m waiting for a friend to come to take a picture on me ! :)
