Argyle Sweater Vests are a staple for any young man's wardrobe. They will provide the foundation for many outfits for school, for parties and for religious services. Plus, studies have shown that children that dress for success are often more likely to achieve it. Start giving your child the edge he will need to compete at university and in life starting with this classic, Blue and Gray Argyle Sweater Vest.
This Four Color Argyle Vest is hand knit of soft merino wool and wool blend yarns. The back of the vest is a solid, coal black, and it coordinates with ribbed trim along the neck and armhole edges. The front has alternating Delft Blue and River Rock Gray colored diamonds with Red X's crossing them to create the classic argyle design.
Although small, this argyle vest is complex and time-consuming to make. It requires 13 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 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.
