A little bit about this pattern- Olga’s Vest is knit with a side-to-side construction. The cowl is created using short rows and this pattern is very easily modified. Once finished this piece can be worn about 15 ways and counting. How is this pattern so versatile? Well, the uniquely designed stitch pattern paired with the amount of buttons basically gives this garment thousands of buttonholes throughout the whole piece allowing for endless combinations of button placements.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to wear the Olga’s Vest:
I know I said that we would start the KAL this coming weekend, but I would like to get started on Saturday, May 10th 2014. This should give everyone enough time to get the pattern, get their yarn and check gauge. There will be a prize for the winner. I have yet to decide what it is going to be, but it will be good (it’s always good).
The KAL for the Olga’s Vest will take place in the Ravelry Group, there we can post pictures, questions, comments and more. A lot of the technique questions can be answered in the KAL I hosted on the blog two years ago, here is the link.
Wondering how you can be one of the prize winners? Well all you have to do is be an active KAL participant. Make sure you post frequently, and in many places, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and of course Ravelry. The more you post, the higher your chances are for winning. In order to win you must also post pictures of your finished piece in the Ravelry Group on or before the KAL end date. The KAL end date is Sunday, June 15th 2014, this will give us a little over a month to finish the vest, but don’t worry– it will go by quickly.
I hope you’ll join the KAL! See you in the Ravelry group!
