I finished both awhile ago but i forgot to get pictures of the vest.

Some of you may have remembered my steeking adventures regarding the vest. I was able to save the vest by reinforcing the steeks by handsteeking where it was coming loose.

I used yarn tree house 50% merino 50% alpaca in strawberry red and black in size 4 needles. purchased from the yarntreehouse ebay seller.

Here are the pics of the Eunny Jang Deep V vest.

Let me know what you think.

That's amazing! I love this vest, is it really hard to knit? It looks so complicated.

Cynamar-Steeking is when you continuing knitting in the round instead of binding off stitches when you do neck and armholes, and knit extra stitches that will be cut into later on after you reinforce it with either crochet/hand/machine stitches-it was pretty scary cutting into it.

-knitgal-it was an easy knit -the only scary part was the cutting part.

Steeking sounds like something best left to much more experienced knitters! Thanks, though!

this is a good project to try steeking. I think if you are an experienced crocheter you can steeking. My problem mostly arose from the fact that even though I've been knitting for years I don't really know how to crochet very well. I'm a fast knitter but a VERY VERY slow crocheter and I didn't pick up all the stitches when i crocheted. This pattern gives very good instructions on how to steek. I just had to learn how to crochet in order to do it.

Post is four years old, but whatever! It is a lovely vest, but I don't think the original poster's going to see any of these nice comments directed at her.
