This Tweed vest, knitted in Thomas Kvist Yarns soft Delicious Tweed, has a long flattering and warm back with a short front. The pattern is folded triangles, knitted as an expanding rib before folding, designed by Lynne Barr and well suited to this beautiful yarn with cashmere and angora. A matching cowl is a necessary accessory in my opinion. Here is the professionally photographed Tweed Vest and Cowl.
Delicious Tweed is made of 65% lambswool, 10% angora, 5% cashmere and 20% nylon, 100 g/3.5 oz, 190 meters/207 yds. Tension is 16 sts to 10 cm/4” on a 5 mm/US 8. For more details see my post dated 8th January, ‘Design Contract’.
Below is a close up photo of the swatch. The pattern will shortly be available as a downloadable PDF in English and Norwegian, due to be translated into German soon, through selected yarn shops see www.thomaskvist.se
