I had the delightful opportunity to make a vest requested by one of my favorite young men. He picked the pattern and colors:
It’s my second time doing intarsia and it was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the duplicate stitch embroidery.
It’s too big for me, but should fit him fine.
Details: Cascade 220 in grey and purple, plus some vintage Brunswick Germantown in natural. The pattern was a highly-modified Alberta by Jared Flood – I did not knit in the round with steeks, I just knit a front and back using the number of stitches specified in the pattern. The argyle chart came off a vintage Caron leaflet. The inspiration was the Hyland Argyle Vest in “Men in Knits.”
