Cable Wheat Vest

Cable Wheat Vest

Pattern: Wheat Cable Vest from the March 2008 issue of Creative Knitting.

Yarn: Cascade Pastaza in Red.

Needles: US 8

Time: About three weeks.

Other: I love this vest. The yarn is a bit itchy/scratchy, which makes it an okay fit for this vest because a shirt will always be worn beneath it. I had several false starts due to gauge and I think the instructions for the vest front are a bit wonky as I had to rip several inches back and start over.
