Jeanne recently bound off on her epic Yvonne project. Many of us beans have cast on for Yvonne--the pattern is by Cocoknits and it's a stunning open draped vest with a huge shawl collar. Jeanne was the first of us to finish, and the result is absolutely gorgeous! She used a discontinued Noro yarn called Yuzen (hurray for having sweater quantities of yarn stashed away!) but she says the composition is very similar to Noro Silk Garden Lite which would be an excellent substitute.
We thought this pattern was so flattering that we took photos of it on a bunch of different beans so you can see the way it works on various body types. Jeanne knit the smaller of the two sizes (Size 1) and as you can see, it fits most of us beautifully! The sizing works based on height, so several of the taller gals like Kristen and Heather thought the size 2 would be just right!
If you are interested in making your own Yvonne, feel free to give us a call and we are happy to help you find the right yarn and size! Our toll free # is: (877) 529-5648.
Nice work Jeanne on your beautiful Yvonne!
