I am working on finishing the Little Black Vest. Mine is LUV (Little Umber Vest). I decided to press the fabric as Sally suggested and it worked beautifully! I do not think it would be appropriate for all types of yarn, but for the Rowan Pure Wool Worsted--it worked great. Press is the key word. No moving the iron over the knitted fabric! I pinned the project to size and steam pressed. After it cooled I sewed the left side and shoulder to the back, picked up 87 stitches for the armhole and worked the trim. Also, the bottom part below the zipper is finished and I pinned the zipper just to see how it looks. I still do not have buttons picked out and may check the button stash first. The reindeer buttons from Shetland would be nice, but I want to save those for something different.
The front edge below the zipper is finished.
A two-row purl ridge is a simple and clean edging for the armhole.
