PATTERN | PEBBLE SLIPOVER VEST
Designed by Pascuali filati naturali
Skill level: Intermediate
Measurement/Size: S-M 36/38, (L 40/42, XL 44/46)
Pebble is knitted using a textured pattern with Alpaca Royal and Alpaca Lace. The two different yarns work well together into a unique colour melange. What makes this vest special is that it can be worn form both sides.
Royal is the name given to alpaca hair with a hair diameter of less than 19.5 microns. Only the young white alpacas have this fineness. To create the colour palette, we used soft baby alpaca hair, in different natal colours and mixed it wit white Alpaca Royal hair.
Alpaca Lace is very easy to work with and has an even stitch definition. Since it is very fine, soft and light, it is the perfect yarn for all fine knits and to combine it with other yarns. It does not split when knitting and has a soft fleece, and nearly lint-free.
You will need the following amount of yarn for size S (M, L):
5 (6, 6) x 25 g Pascuali Alpaca Royal (100% alpaca hair) in colour A
