As I get older, I just prefer to knit.

Cable_Vest

HOT OFF THE NEEDLES—This vest pattern is adapted from a vintage pattern published by Sirdar Spinning LTD. The vintage pattern was knit in pieces and buttoned up the front. This adaptation is knitted in the round as a pull over using four skeins of Cascade Yarns’ Lana d’Oro (50% superfine alpaca, 50% wool). The only two features left from the original pattern are the stripes and cable. I’m teaching a man’s vest class at Sarah Jane’s Yarn Shop this fall and have adapted this pattern for that event.
