Designing With Kauni
was purchased to make the "Ladies Jacquard Vest" from Knitpicks.com, but using Kauni 8/2 for the background. I thought the softly varied light grey to black shading would look more interesting under the Burgundy tweed patterning. Unfortunately the Kauni is a bit thicker than the Knitpicks Palette yarn that is called for in the pattern and I wasn't able to achieve gauge and still maintain a soft, drapable fabric.
So I have designed an entirely different vest for myself using Sweater Wizard. This vest will still have the varying greys/black background and the burgundy tweed patterning but the stitch pattern and neckline will be different. I'm hoping it will actually look better than the original plan. At least I won't end up with flowers planted directly over the...ahem..."girls".
