The yarn and the beautiful colorway are a perfect yarn substitution!
"I looked at a bazillion FOs on Ravelry made from this yarn to make sure that the color change was subtle enough that my cables would still stand out.
I've gotten a lot of compliments on it and it is very cozy. The yarn is Louet Bonnie, which is a single ply with a silk thread running through it to make it sturdy.
I really love singles as they always feel squishier and it is lighter compared to other bulky yarns.
I changed my mind about what size I was going to knit after I had cast on and knit several inches of ribbing. I went from co for a M to a S, so in row 22 I repeated the Dec 4 and in row 25 I skipped the increase. This made the transition from ribbing to sweater body smooth instead of tucked in. The pattern was fun and quick with just the right amount of shaping to make me pay attention. I love bulky yarn!" -- Emily H.
Emily used Sunset 04 color for the project. See the #122 Tie-Front Long Cabled Vest knitting pattern and cast on your own version!
