Tonight I finished the back for a vest for myself from yarn I bought some years ago at John Lewis in London. This was Novita alpaca made in Finland and it is very good quality and soft. Originally it was meant to be fairisle, but when swatched I saw it would be much too heavy and warm so I switched to a plain entrelac. I always check the entrelac instructions in the Harmony books. This one is a 10 stitch repeat and the back is about 22" wide and about 20" long. I may decide to add ribbing. I really wanted to make it into a v-neck cardi but discovered tonight I don't have enough of some of the colors so it will become a pullover vest. Neckline most likely a modified v-neck.
