Sauble Sunset

Another cool fall day was just perfect for wearing the sauble sunset vest for the first time. It is lightweight and cozy and perfect for layering. I love the pattern, the only thing I would change if I made it again is the neckline. It's on the low side and I think it would be nice to have a higher neckline for the next one. I also added length to this one by adding some ribbing at the bottom, that and I didn't care for how the lace rolled up. 

Ein kuehler Herbsttag war perfekt um meine neue sauble sunset Weste anzuziehen. Sie ist federleicht und fuehlt sich so schoen weich an. Das Muster gefaellt mir total gut, nur wuerde ich den Halsauschnitt naechstes mal abaendern. Ist mir ein bissl zu tief ausgeschnitten... Ich habe auch die Laenge etwas abgeaendert indem ich einige Reihen kraus rechts als Bund hinzugefuegt habe. Die Weste hat sich sonst am Bund gerollt und das fand ich nicht so toll.


 Went online and found some vintage glass buttons on etsy, I think they compliment the vest perfectly.

Die Glasknoepfe sind "vintage" und ich habe sie bei etsy erstanden. Ich finde sie passen super zu der Weste.

    1. The pattern said to start the neckline after knitting so many inches of garter stitch. I would just knit a few more inches before starting it. Does that make sense?
