I love the colours of the yarn and I think my choice of Fair isle patterns really works well. The yarn is perfect for the project. It is Rowan's Scottish Tweed 4 ply - a little on the rough side to wear next to the skin but ideal for wearing over blouses or tees. The roughness gives the vest a rustic quality that is reminiscent of the 1940s landgirls.
The pattern will follow - in the twinkling of an eye!
