Orange vest

Just in the nick of time before heading away I finished Aidan’s rather complicated cable and moss stitch vest. It wasn’t the original pattern which called for some kind of v-shaped knobbly bits so I had to get out a bit of paper like Nana used to and work out how many stitches across, less the 8 for the cable and 2 either side of the cable for the reverse track (so that the cable ‘popped’) then work out the knit-2-purl-2 sequence with what was left to create the double moss stitch!

It worked (after unpicking a couple of times) and looks great! It took me so long though so he’ll not get much wear out of it as he’s growing fast.
