Birch Vest Crocheted with Bamboo So Fine Yarn by Kristin Omdahl in Coral

A very sweet friend and student of mine used her first skein of Bamboo So Fine Yarn to make the Birch Vest. It's a beautiful lace vest I originally designed for Interweave Crochet Magazine, and is now available in the InterweaveStore.com as a FREE PDF instand pattern download here: Birch Crochet Vest by Kristin Omdahl.

She made the x-small size and used less than a skein of Bamboo So Fine in colorway coral. The subtle color variation is so gorgeous on this lace vest! I want one so badly!!

Here are the specs on the Vest:

Worked from the top down in an easy raglan style of increases, the yoke is worked in rows of double crochet. The lower half of the vest is worked in a beautiful lace stitch pattern. Reverse double crochet gives a simple, decorative trim.

Finished Size: 34 (38, 42, 46, 50)" bust circumference and 28 (28 1/2, 29, 29 1/2, 30)" in length. Garment shown measures 34", modeled with 0" ease. 
Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Wool [50% silk, 50% baby merino; 150 yd [127 m]/1 3/4 oz [50 g]): #433 acorn, 4 (5, 5, 6, 6) balls.  

To Substitute Bamboo So Fine: 1 (1, 1, 2, 2), meaning you'll need one skein of yarn to make either the x-small, small or medium (34", 38", 42") or two skeins of yarn to make the large and x-large (46" and 50")
Yarn Weight: #2 - Fine
Hook: Size G/6 (4 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.   
Notions: Stitch markers (m); yarn needle; three 3/4" buttons.

Beginners Guide to Knitting In the Round eBook and Hard Copy books available NOW!

"Beginners Guide to Knitting in the Round" by Kristin Omdahl is available as a digital eBook NOW! The print version releases August 1st, but if you want to get started now, click here for more information on the eBook: "Beginners Guide to Knitting in the Round" by Kristin Omdahl

For beginners who are ready to advance beyond flat knitting, working in the round is a natural progression, says designer Kristin Omdahl. It alleviates a lot of seams, she explains, which gives a better structure to your projects, as well as making them more pleasing aesthetically. Kristin created the designs in this book to be easy projects for learning to use double pointed and circular knitting needles, as well as combination projects that transition from one type of needle to the other. 

Great for gifts, projects include a Headband, Cowl, Lace Capelet, Pouch, Baby Hat, Fingerless Mitts, Baby Blanket, and Family Hat in sizes for toddlers, children, women, and men.

To order a personalized, autographed copy from Kristin, you can find more information here: Personalized, Autographed hardcopy of Beginners Guide to Knitting in the Round by Kristin Omdahl

Each order will receive a special coupon code for skeins of Bamboo So Fine Yarn by Kristin Omdahl :)
