Cardivest #5

Cardivest #5
Tangier: 47% Silk, 19% Acrylic, 17% Cotton, 17% Rayon
Avalon: 50% Cotton, 50% Acrylic
Mother of Pearl buttons.
In order to feature the Tangier's gradation of colors, I chose stockinette, with garter ridges of the Avalon. This is the only vest so far with no wool at all in the mix, per request.
 The side panels were knit first and then the back stitches were picked up along the edge and worked towards the center. Then those were joined down the middle with a three needle bind off.
The fronts were also picked up along the edges of the side panels.
