The yarn used in the gray swatch is Malabrigo Chunky, and I used size 9 US (5.5mm) needles.
The yarn used in the green swatch is Hazel Knits DK Lively, and I used size 7 (4.5mm) needles.

The bamboo needles I’m using are by Clover.

The sweater on the mannequin is my Ombre Dyed Sweater, pattern + video tutorial.

  1. Hi,
    I just love your site, you helped me a lot, but I can’t find a good video teaching how to make a v-neck vest, the actual armholes decreases and v-neck decreases. Can you, pleeeeaaaaseee, help me?
    Thank you again and keep up with the good work!
