With this project I am attempting to stretch myself in terms of my knitting abilities. I'm experimenting with circular stranded knitting and colorwork. I'm trying to teach myself how to knit with a color in each hand, to weave in the ends, avoid twisted stitches, and notice the effect of different color combinations. It's a lot. But, I'm having fun, so the end result is almost beside the point.
So, it's a vest knit with a two-color brocade pattern that was designed to be knit in pieces in intarsia. I've chosen to knit it as a stranded pattern on circular needles with two balls of Kauni Rainbow (EQ) colorway yarn.
The pattern is a lot of fun to watch develop as the colors change and the non-repeating pattern unfolds.
The yarn holders are a little distracting -- they are keeping the pocket stitches "live" to be finished later.
The pattern was taken from an old (1992) Kim Hargreaves book.
Oh, BTW, did I mention it has a steek? (Eek!) Stay tuned as the fun continues ...
