Anyway, back to the vest. This vest is available on our site as a kit. The kit comes with about a pound and a half of Anna's Yarn in 15 randomly selected colors.
My vest is made with more than the 15 colors as I had nice little stash of Anna's Yarns left over from dye projects.
The vest is very easy to knit-- it is all garter and slip stitch with a bit of shaping at the armholes.
It is also very fun to knit as you get to experiment with how colors work around and with each other.
As with most vests-- it can be worn over short sleeve tees in the warmer months and long sleeve t's and turtlenecks in cooler months. Of course with all these colors it is sure to go with lots of things in your wardrobe.
I have also kitted the pattern with our Pima Petite yarns for some of Charlotte's customers.
Here is what one of those kits might look like:
I have not had a chance to knit the whole vest in cotton but did make a test swatch and it makes quite a nice fabric.
So if you ever want to knit a project with lots and lots of color give the Allspice Vest a try.
You will not be disappointed with the fun knitting and classic style of the finished project!
