Sleeveless Jacket for Melanie

It's been a luxurious experience knitting this vest for Melanie. The yarns I used are the ultimate in gorgeous feeling fibers and plump up as each stitch is made. Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, 30% silk and 70% merino. The contrast yarn is Sublime Organic Merino Wool DK. It's yarn like this that keeps my fingers itching to knit.

  5. What a lovely garment - I recognise part of it as the 'surprise jacket' technique, but wonder whether you grafted the underarm seams, or sewed them together? I haven't tried the mitred squares/diamonds technique yet, but this encourages me to make it a future project.
