Yes, you read that right. Since last September I’ve knitted 19 vests in various colours and sizes for the lady from milliemanu. I wrote about two boleros a few days ago.
I used this great DROPS pattern, but instead of adding the texture the pattern calls for I just knitted stockinette stitch all the way, making them actually quite a fast and easy knit. Of course because it was a DROPS pattern I also used DROPS yarn, DROPS Merino Extra Fine to be exact. It’s a lovely soft yarn that calls for 3,5-4mm needles, yet another reason that it knit up quickly. So without further ado, here are the 19 vests.
And here’s a collection of a bunch of them together.
I met a lady last year in the Summer at a kids festival/fair, she’s a designer and sells the most amazing girls dresses and some shirts for boys too. Check her out at milliemanu.
When she found out that I was a knitter we started a business relationship and so during the last year I knitted a whole load of things. First, I’m going to show you a couple of bolero’s I test-knitted for her last Summer.
I used this DROPS pattern, but amended it slightly and left the buttons off. I used DROPS BabyAlpacaSilk and Camilla from milliemanu asked me to add the velvet border. I knitted two versions, one in this gorgeous lilac and another in a light, pale green, see below:
And she loved them, but thought they were a little too warm for the Summer, which I kind of agree with. This meant that I didn’t have to knit any further ones of this kind. But this year I am making another lot, but a different version. Stay tuned in the next few days to see these.
You might remember me posting about a hat and bootie combo for a friend of mine. Well this last week she sent me some pictures of her absolutely gorgeous girl in the beanie and booties…and I’m just going to let the pictures do the talking.
