Back in October I bought some Manos de Uraguay yarn with the intention of knitting a vest (or, for the English, a tank top or waistcoat). If memory serves, this stuff is somewhere between a chunky and aran weight. I’m thinking of shocking my IRL knitting friends by not only demonstrating that I own needles thicker than 4mm but that I am prepared to knit with them.
I’m sort of thinking about winging it. But I’d welcome pattern suggestions, particularly for ones with interesting design details.
I’ve looked at the Knitty archive and like Honeycomb but it is for finer wool (might have to find something else to knit that in…). I also have a pile of Interweave Knits magazines around if you want to guide my dive into those.
I’m about a women’s XL, prefer V or scoop necks, have a waist, kind of long in the body, and 5’7″ if that helps with thinking of stuff that might look good.
