This four color Blue and Purple Argyle Vest is hand knit of soft merino wool and wool blend yarns. The back of the vest is a solid, grape jam purple, and it coordinates with ribbed trim along the neck and armhole edges. The front has alternating blueberry blue and whipped cream white colored diamonds with X's made of emerald green lines going in one direction and the grape jam purple lines going in the other. They cross in the centers to create the classic argyle design.
Although small, this argyle vest is complex and time-consuming to make. It requires 11 bobbins to establish the diamond design. After the knitting is complete, there are dozens of ends to weave in and the X pattern to create in duplicate stitch across each diamond. This vest is knit of a lighter, double knit weight yarn that requires more stitches per inch than one made of worsted weight. The finer yarn gives the fabric of the vest greater flexibility while still maintaining the warmth of wool.
Your young man will definitely be noticed as he sports this fashionable Hand Knit Argyle Sweater Vest. Argyle vest creates a tailored, (not boxy) silhouette that will flatter your boy. It features the traditional argyle diamond-and-X pattern and has ribbed trim along the neck edge, armholes and hem.
