One more!

Hi again, just a quick addendum to the Vest-uary post. I completely spaced out on a very cute vest pattern! It’s the Ribby-Yo Vest by Cathy Carron. Knit in Peruvia Quick, it’s available now in the Spring 2009 issue of Knitscene, one of my favorite knitting publications…

This vest was featured in a very cool column called Style Spotting. Styling knitwear can be difficult–you don’t want to have that unfortunate slip shod, ramshackle look that pop culture usually saddles us crafters with. We know we’re better than that!! This column helps by discussing the sartorial properties of specific garments and showing a few cute underpinnings and accessories. To quote my fellow UMass alumni the Pixies, it’s educational! I don’t know about you but I’d like a whole issue’s worth of this sort of content…here is a preview:

Cute! With such a chunky yarn, you’d have plenty of time to whip this up before the end of February/Vest-uary, especially if you have President’s Day off…

    Thank you for the free doll aran–I am working on a knitted doll wardrobe utilizing my “free yarn” (already paid for stash) for our Relay for Life team site to raffle it off as a fundraiser. This is a nice addition.
    Again, thank you.

    I am knitting this very cute vest, but having a problem. I hope someone can help me. I am on the section in the pattern called “Divide for Neck”. The number of stitches I have on the needle (62, size M) doesn’t work for the instructions in the section. I have emailed Knitscene for corrections, but no reply. Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  5. Hi Pauline–that scarf is actually woven, not knit. I would check with the store listed underneath it.
