Also started an item for me. A snug gilet in the nice James C Brett Rustic aran that I used for Little Friend M's cardie recently. Same colour too.
Only problem is, there's no picture of the back and it's all textured so is taking AGES to knit.... sigh.... It will all be worth it I'm sure. Eventually
Here's where I'm up to so far. Just decreasing for the armholes.
|Never ending back of gilet|
|This is described as "Rice Stitch" in the pattern.|
If you are interested it's a design from the Favourite Aran Knits 3 book by Sirdar. Last design in the book.
