argyle progress.

waist shaping, argyle vest

life got in the way & i didn't meet the February 28 finishing deadline for my argyle vest.

however, i'm totally fascinated with how this vest is constructed. i've learned more about shaping & construction from this 1 pattern (& having to painstakingly rip out rows & redo them) than i have from any other pattern.

i'm really having a good time with this one.

here's the V-neck shaping.

neckline, argyle vest

the steek is a row of stitches in the middle of the V that, after a bit of crochet work, will be cut down the middle to form facings.
