I loved Knitty's thermal pattern, but I've never knit a sweater before and I knew I'd never have enough patience to knit a long-sleeved sweater on size 3 needles. Thus I present.. the thermal vest!

I'm really happy with how this turned out cos it was my first time trying any armhole and neckline shaping of any kind and I had to fudge it a bit. This is knit with DK weight yarn (Patons Zhivago, half tencel half acrylic) on size 6 needles, and it only took me a week and a day. Cheesy

that is so cute- I'm going to make one of these, but now I'm confused over the sleeve issue- any regrets on going sleeveless?

Little yarn, beware of the cold blooded knitter

Beautiful yarn! And could you share some technical comments about the no-sleeves ? I really prefer Thermal as a vest ! So inspiring!
