I was asked back in April by a friend to make a vest for her. So I when she was over one night I brought out all my pattern books and magazines and we went through many of them looking for a suitable vest. She earmarked a few of the ones that she liked but none that really "got" her. So I logged on to Ravelry and we had another browse there.
She settled on the Cambridge Vest.
Pattern: Cambridge Vest by Martin Storey
From: Rowan Classic Alpaca Book 13
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed in Herb 3.5 skeins
Needles: 3.5mm & 3.75mm
I've used this yarn before and loved it. I love the different flecks of colour especially the two colours of blue in this colourway along with black and white.
