Pattern of the month - Ink
Ink is a textured vest that is perfect for transitional weather. Worked in DK weight yarn from the top down, shown in Inkpot farm DK, a fab 100% British wool yarn.
Reasons to love this pattern:
Sized to fit chest measurements from 63-161 cm / 25” to 63” depending on your choice of ease.
The ribbed texture has loads of stretch.
Working a vest means no sleeve island to get stuck on - work the body, add edgings and you are done.
No seaming, weave in the ends and the vest is ready to wear.
Use this pattern as a stash buster - the sample shown uses just 200g of yarn for a size 36" bust worn with negative ease and a slightly cropped style.
DK yarn gives a balance of speedy knitting with warmth, but not too hot.
Adjust the pattern to suit your style - adjust armhole depth, body length, ease.
A perfect piece for variable Spring and Autumn weather, when a full sweater is too much.
Team it with a smart collared shirt, jeans and boots for a great look.
