Texture vest by Helga Isager, Alpaca 3 + Spinni knitting kit
Yarn kit for Texture vest by Helga Isager.
Texture is a pretty new vest from Helga Isager. It is worked in Isager Alpaca 3 together with Isager Spinni - a surprisingly lovely and slightly rustic quality that is still soft. The vest has fine details with rib edges, where the ribs continue into the rhombus pattern, as well as a beautiful collar.
The kit includes: Isager Alpaca 3 and Merilin in the right amount for the your selected size, and a printed pattern.
Sizes: S/M (M/L).
About sizes: Note the large jump between the 2 sizes. This is because the pattern repeat is 12 sts, and the shape of the vest follows the pattern repeat. Also note that size S/M, with its deep armholes, can be worn by a size L person, if you want a close fitting vest.
For a smaller vest (size XS), knit in only one strand of Alpaca 3, on a 6 mm [US10] needle following the numbers for size S/M. This gives a half chest circumference of 49.5 cm [19½ inches].
For a larger vest (size XXL – XXXL), knit with Isager Tvinni instead of Isager Spinni on a 7 mm [no US equivalent] needle following the number for size M/L. This gives a half chest circumference of 66.5 cm [26¼ inches].
