Going Nutty

Yes, I went a little nutty on this vest--in a few different ways.  I pushed ahead, got myself to the V-neck shaping, and couldn't control myself:


It's finished and blocking!  I was planning to write a post about the V-neck shaping, but you all know what a knit in progress looks like, so let's just cut to the chase.

Here's a closeup on both Kathy's modified i-cord edging, and Annie Modesitt's i-cord edging:


Modified, a very simple flat edge.
Row 1 (RS): K1, wyif sl1, k1, work to last 3 sts, k1, wyif sk1, k1
Row 2 (WS): wyif sl1, k1, wyif sl1, work to last 3 sts, wyif sl1, k1, wyif sl1


Row 1 (RS): K1, wyif sl1, k1, p2, work to last 5 sts, p2, k1, wyif sk1, k1
Row 2 (WS): wyif sl1, k1, wyif sl1, k2, work to last 5 sts, k2, wyif sl1, k1, wyif sl1

For future reference, the two complement each other, and because the edging is knit as you go, there's no need to go back and pick up stitches.  I like that.


Oooh, very nice edgings! I love applied I-cord, but the idea of knitting it as you go... VERY EXCITING!

It's beautiful Colleen. But i have to ask - do you ever sleep?!?!?

oh that's awesome! you must be thrilled -- and even quicker than you thought. you're really inspiring me to keep working on paul's sweater.

ps - i think row 1 of the modified instructions should read "knit to last FIVE sts" if i'm reading it correctly.

Wow, looking good! I am looking forward to seeing it all done and modeled! Is Annie Modesitt's i-cord edging the one used on the Backyard Leaves scarf?

Very interesting! It looks great!

Love the color Colleen! I'm sure Matt will be really happy with it. Hope the weekend turned out well and you hit all the stores without problems!

The vest looks great! Love the shaping.

Ah, yes, that's the nice edging used on the Backyard Leaves scarf - the two purls really draw attention to the very neat border. Looks great as the edging of the vest neck opening, too!

That's such aneat edging. Thanks for sharing!
