Car Knitting

I had some concentrated knitting time last week – on the way to and from a lovely visit with my family. The result is this:

which will become the lovely Tyra

from the book Modern Living by S. Charles. From the moment I saw the pattern I wanted to make this vest/shawl. I got the book from Webs (my LYS didn’t carry it) and found some Maggie’s Alpaca in my stash.

It’s great car knitting because it is all seed stitch and ribbing. It’s a bulky gauge (12 sts/4 inch) on US 10’s. The pattern called for 14 sts/4 inch but I couldn’t get that with this yarn so I modified the stitch count. The vest is constructed from 3 rectangles.
