A sense of deja vu? This may look very similar to the last item I knitted, Nurmilintu, but it is a completely different pattern - similar but different.
I had half the Drops Alpaca left, so I looked for a new pattern. This has the same basic shape of a long, thin triangle, and the same idea of alternating bands of garter stitch and lace. The edge increases are done in a more sophisticated way here, producing a little rolled edge.
I also prefer the lace pattern here - it's more open and airy. The final ten rows or so shift to a proper edging, so it blocked out better.
Now I am beguiled by a box of Shetland yarns. In full sunlight, the blended colours really gleam. Perhaps another waistcoat?
