Purple V-lace and Cable Vest



This is the vest for my friend and she pick the purple colour - one of her favourite colour. The stitch pattern is a combination of v-shape lace and cable, the difficulty is that I have to calculate the exact stitches to fit her size and she is in big size. To order to figure out her body shape, I need to shape the waist section which I don't do this on my cardigan or vest. After knitted inches, the pattern turns out quite nice. She will read this blog and has a chance to have a preview of her vest.

It's a pretty vest design. I've seen that Mondial yarn in LYS and it looks soft and nice to work with. I dislike to resizing patterns as well. I noticed that in some patterns, the designs have plain stitches on the sides, thus making the shaping work much easier.
The cross stich key ring turned out lovely!

wow, you are using very fine yarn,
which will take more time to finish it.
Your knitting is very neat, looks like a 'machine work'. :)

I like your knitting...it's neat and there's not a stitch out of place. I must find that yarn shop in Japan. The only part of Japan I usually see is Narita....the airport.
