Vogue Knitting Sheath
I knit the sheath in the latest Vogue Knitting magazine and thought I would post it. It was a really fun project:

I can't tell what yarn you used? Is it self striping, or did you do all those little stripes?

I the latest issue of VogueKnitting, there is so much in it!

Many thanks for the wonderful comments.

The yarn I used was Cascade Fixation, which is an elastic yarn. The colors are khaki, pink, yellow and olive. The pattern is all done in a woven stitch to mimic sort of a tweed. I did have to change color all the time, I believe every 2 rows for each of the colors. It was a slip stitch, so every other stitch was slipped behind the khaki color. It give it very much a tweed appearance. I started out cutting the yarn at a color change, but found it worked better to carry all the yarns, as the side are sewn, so any floaters are hidden.

Thanks again for the comments. I'm proud of it!
