Jac and I have been dropping spoilers about our Kniterary line for awhile now. Basically, we are big ol’ yarn-teases. I am thrilled to announce that as of this moment it is really happening. The HP LoveVest is kicking off our line of Literature inspired knit wear, and you can have the pattern right now by clicking here:
A PDF will be emailed to you by Ravelry. You don’t need to be a Ravelry member to order, but if you are, the PDF will show up in your library. If you are a member of Ravelry, you can view the HP LoveVest pattern here.
The pattern is also available here in our Etsy Store.
I wrote about the piece about a month ago when we were calling for testers, and I can’t tell you how much it warmed the cockles of our hearts to get such a wonderful response. Thanks guys! With no further ado, let’s talk about warm chests and evil overlords!
Let’s face it, it’s tough to be a woman bent on world domination and the consumption of all joy these days. Between screening new minion candidates, hitting your zumba class, and destroying all the major metropolitan cities in the tri-continental area it’s easy to sacrifice fashion for comfort.
Well, not on MY watch.
My model had a blast with the vest… Maybe too much fun. ;)
This vest is made from Mountain Meadow Wool in Jackson, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It is durable, soft, and the color is even more fabulous in person than in pictures. It’s a perfect yarn for something that you plan on wearing often. And what’s the point of making it if you don’t plan on wearing it? I was thrilled with the yarn, will definitely use it again, and give it my highest recommendations.
The vest is a quick knit, worked flat on US 8 needles and seamed down each side after blocking. The cables aren’t nearly as complicated as they look, and employ a 20 stitch repeat that is very user friendly. The pattern is written for sizes Sm-XXXL, and we base our sizes on bust size. I feel strongly about designing for real human women of all sizes (sorry Twi’leks, maybe next time we’ll include sizing charts for you too) and I keep full figured ladies such as myself in mind when I pattern. I think the HP LoveVest will flatter just about anyone, and I can’t wait to see your projects!
One last thing…
I flew solo on the photo shoot this time. Normally that is Jac’s jurisdiction. We had a full out fist thumping, lip pursing, nostril flaring argument about this photo:
I think it’s fierce. Jac says it looks like our fantastically lovely model is taking a fierce poop. Weigh in and
tell her she’s wrong give us your opinion.
