NHK33-1 Cabled Vest

Some pieces depend overwhelmingly on either the variegate, or the cabling. This design is so sound it withstands any kind of yarn treatment at all; it looks great in the Vignette (a chainette), but it would look magnificent in any solid or heathered heavy worsted (i.e., something that knits up to around 16 sts to 4"/10cm in st st). Nor is the design specifically masculine or feminine. It's sufficiently unusual-- but with a botanical, tree-trunk air-- that it becomes both sexes equally. From Nashua Handknits Book 33, Quarry.
