Here is the #111 Long Lace Shawl Collared Vest pattern, knit in a stunning yarn from Noro yarns. The colorways of the Noro yarns are so unique and really create projects that stand out!
Pamela Y. of Austin, TX knit this one and here are her comments:
"The Long Lace Vest, like other garment patterns of yours, felt initially quite daunting - the sheer WEIGHT of the 16 or so pages of the pattern gave me pause...........However, once underway, I had the familiar and delightful experience of immediate comfort ease and clarity in your instructions, which made this garment a real pleasure to knit.
In fact, I had trouble putting it down, (always a choice when one is knitting ten different projects at a time.......), and I was especially intrigued by the color changes in the yarn - it kept bringing surprises.
I thought the nature of the color variegation worked beautifully with the pattern - especially the lush shawl collar, where the colors unfolded in an almost botanical form........... this colorway was just muted enough that the color changes did not compete with the lace patterning.
The fabric has a nice drape yet has enough structure to hold its shape. I liked this pattern so much that I plan to knit it again, in a solid color. Thank you, Katherine, for providing us with such wonderful patterns!" -- Pamela Y.
Thank you, Pamela, for sending these photos in showing us how gorgeous this pattern looks in this Noro yarn! Just a show-stopping vest! The Noro yarn Pamela used is Noro Cash Island (60% wool, 30% cashmere, 10% nylon) in Color No. 11.
