Striped vest

A short post about something else than soakers (still more to come of those, don’t worry!).

Since my mom got her Aeolian, I also wanted to knit something for my dad. A warm vest to wear over t-shirts during colder spring/summer days seemed like the perfect project.


It’s much too big for the model, and I hear it’s also a bit too wide for my dad. But who cares? It’s warm and should be functional enough.

Yarn: Riihivilla Aarni. Dark brown for the dark stripes, armholes and neck, beige for the lighter stripes. My absolute favorite yarn! I still haven’t found another yarn that even comes close, and I doubt I ever will. I also used one skein of Noro Silk Garden for the stripes at the lower part of the vest.

The stitch counts and measurements are based on Peter Easy by Berroco.

Now, back to knitting diaper covers. Only one month left until they will be used…
