My First Finished Object of 2006

BoogieVest4.jpg

Pattern: Boogie by Amy King in Knitty.com
Yarn: Cascade 128 (just over 3 skeins)
Modifications: As I mentioned in a previous post, the pattern does not include any shaping for the v-neck. I added shaping by decreasing one stitch on each RS row. I don’t think it looks too horrible, but maybe just a tad funky. In retrospect it might have looked better if I followed the pattern as written. Here is a close-up of the neck:

Upon finishing the vest, I realized that it’s not quite my style, so it will be a gift for someone else. Hopefully she will like it!

    It’s a great color! I never got around to showing you pictures of mine. What I ended up doing, which is what I also should have told you, is carrying up the cables to the top. I placed decreases right after/just before the cables.

    Congratulation on your first project of this year! I like the color! In my opinion, I think it needs some edging work to finish the neck and the armholes, then you may see it better.
