Nobel vest

For me, Nobel was a work of love and labor! I took extreme pleasure in working the complex cable, pairing the cables and adjusting them for the chart so they would fit perfectly together. It is truly a refined vest with those large cables and meandering twisted stitches creating the fabric of a perfect outfit to keep warm the growing body of a future Nobel prize winner!

The vest is constructed in a very classic way, with a ribbing hem and 2 large charted cable panels, one on the front and one on the back. The refined V-Neck completes a timeless look, for a garment you can be proud of!

I used one of my favorite easy care yarns for this design, Berroco Comfort, in a lovely shade of heathered grey. I love working with it, and it goes in and out of the wash without blinking, which is something that I don't find true about most washable yarns. It also is more of an Aran than a worsted weight, which is a nice compromise when you don't really want a bulky yarn.

So if you are looking for that perfectly challenging cabled project, Nobel is just right for you!
