Little Boy's Hand Knit Argyle Sweater Vest is a "must have" for the dressed-for-success student of today. Made of merino wool and wool blend yarn, it is soft and stylish and will keep your boy not-too-hot and not-too-cool as he pursues his studies.
Argyle knits are very popular this year in menswear. I created a smaller version of the classic vest for boys in nice, neutral shades. The back, V-neck opening and armhole edges are done in a dark chocolate color. The diamond shapes on the front are done in milk chocolate and oatmeal colors. Crossing them are X's in oatmeal and cherry. Overall, a delicious addition to a young man's wardrobe.
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 sew in duplicate stitch across each diamond in contrasting colored yarn. This vest is created of a lighter weight yarn that requires more stitches per inch than one made of worsted weight. The finer yarn gives the vest greater flexibility while still maintaining the warmth of wool.
