New Knit Cardi Vest

Question: What can you knit in under 8 hours?
Answer: A chunky cardi vest with cap sleeves.
This new sample was truly effortless to knit up on size 6.50 mm needles. The colour changes were amazing to watch as they graduated from a mixed colour to a solid, in shades of plum, purple, and raspberry. There was no consistent repeats of colourways from one ball to the next, which I prefer, as it gives the finished piece much more of a hand dyed quality. Other colourways available in this Chunky weight yarn are Ocean Blue/Peacock, Neutral Beige/Soft Denim, and Mauve/Lilac Heather, all equally as pretty and definitely fitting one's Fall and Winter wardrobe. Now I just have to put together kits in a range of sizes and colours and have it on display for the coming week.
