I’ve completed the first front of what will be a vest in the style of my “Leftfield Diamond”. It took exactly one ball (108 yds). I expect the back to take 1.5 balls (162 yds).

I love how this stitch combination is coming out!

The armholes will be added later because this I created this stitch pattern to be an easy to steek one.


Half of the Back is now done and it took exactly a ball, so I’m on track for this to be a 4 ball vest. (430 yds). Had houseguests, which slowed me down a bit but I hope to complete this at a good pace now. I have lots more experiments to try!


Created a short video of the steeking step today! “Snip & Unzip an Armhole”, under 2 minutes.
All I have left to do is open the other armhole, edge them, and get photos of it styled different ways. Well and write up the pattern.
