Pattern Sneak Peak - Schmidt

TricotChico and I (GoGoDavitron) have been working super hard the last couple months preparing some fall knits for you guys. We're super excited to bring these to you, and I'm even more excited to share a sneak peak with you!

Pattern: "Schmidt" by David Castillo for Splendor (on ravelry)
Yarn: Fibra Natura Shepherd's Own in colorway 40004
Needles: Addi Turbo circulars, US4
Gauge: 5 sts/inch in stockinette

Schmidt is part of a collection of argyle-reminiscent knits. That is, instead of making colorwork argyle, these patterns will feature textural argyle. This particular vest features the textural argyle as the central motif, but also has very flattering ribbing at the sides as well as a shallow v-neck treatment, allowing for maximum comfort. This vest is intended to be dressed up or down, As comfortable at church as it is enjoying a picnic in the park!

This pattern will become available for purchase via Ravelry this spring - plenty of time for fall knitting, and will definitely give you plenty of time for Christmas knitting! Don't worry, we'll remind you as soon as it's available!
