I think my dyeing experiment was a reasonable success: The red gets as deep as I wanted it too, and I like the light blue. I'm not sure if the light blue will show up enough once the yarn is plyed, but for now, it's looking good. I have one sk... [Read More]

At the end of the last week, I could feel my wrists and hands giving up, so I didn't do any crafting at all this weekend - an impressive feat. I guess playing video games wasn't the best idea for a substitute, but they had to do. But! It all worke... [Read More]

let me preface this post by saying that i don't spend a whole lot of money on yarn, and i don't buy anything like large quantities of yarn very often.  having said that, this past week, i spent more than i'm accustomed to on expanding my stash.&nb... [Read More]

You are a superstar. Thanks for doing this!!!!

Thank you for making the pattern available!

Oh, I love the fact that you included an image of your sketchbook. So cool!

Fantastic! This pattern is more than worth its price, and thank you for all the work you did to make it accessible!

Awesome pattern! I'm definitely going to download this one.

I'm so psyched!! Do you think I can easily alter it to include long sleeves?

Yay for Eunny! Thanks for taking the time to do this.

great job Eunny!
have you tried payloadz?

Wow. Thanks so much for all the work you put into this. I can't wait to introduce my hands to the ways of fair isle and steeks.

Looks good . . . congrats!


Beautiful beautiful pattern Eunny.

What a lovely pattern!

wow eunny, the pattern looks so professionally done. i will definitely get a copy after some of the WIPs are wrapped up. gorgeous work!

WOW, Congratulations on a great pattern!!!!

I just tried to buy this, but they wouldn't recognize my card. Which is quite irritating! Is there any other option for purchasing???

Okay, nevermind. I just made an account instead.

It looks sooo professional and detailed. Way to go - way better than what you'd find in any magazine. I'm going to have to order it. I don't know when the heck I'll have time to make it, but it's too cute to pass up.

Your work is exquisite! Hope you'll consider selling your patterns on The Knitting Vault--check it out!


Looks very nicely done and professional! Thanks!

Just printed out my pattern.... O. M. G. !It is phenomenal! What an excellent job you have done, on the pattern, the steeking diagrams and of course, the actual knitting. Please feel very, very proud of yourself!
And thank you for sharing all your time and expertise with us! You are amazing!

Thanks Eunny :) I'll be purchasing this one.. when I'm not scared of it.

Awesome! I bet it is fabulously written and well thought out.

Picked myself up a copy :) If the yahoo address doesn't work, becida at gmail dot com should do it.

Just finished printing it out; has to be the most value for my $$ I've ever gotten from a pattern! Can I ask what software you used for the schematics? Everything looks uber-professional--great job.

Eunny, this is fantastic. I now know what I'm knitting for the knit olympics.

Gosh, 16 pages??
I'm questioning my knitting ability now, but what the heck, I want it!!
Thanks, and I hope paypal is working ;)

Wow, thanks Eunny! my computer is sick, so I'll wait till it's better before purchasing but I'm so excited! Would you be terribly offended if I used another Fair Isle design for it?

This pattern is adorable. I just bought my copy and am already looking forward to knitting it. Great design!


Hurray!! Thank you so much for making the pattern available to us! It will be the best $5.00 I have spent in a long time...

Happy Knitting!

Hi Eunny!
Just discovered your site and you give great details on techniques that I have been wanted to learn about (the Norwegian steeking being one of them). Thanks for showing us how to decipher cables and argyle!
Kind regards,

Just got my pattern! Can't wait (though it will have to for a few months). Dang, I'm even tempted to host a KAL, just you see!

BTW, I think the price is very generous considering the level of detail and thought you put into this, not to mention the great steeking tutorial you have in the pattern and on your site.

I totally want to knit this. If its okay with you, could you tell us the reccomended yarn(s) we need to complete the project? I like to know what yarn (and how much of it) I'll need before I buy a pattern. Thats because sometimes I have to save up some of my yarn allowance before I can get started. (And sometimes, what I need is in the stash.)

Thank you for the excellent pattern, I look forward to knitting the vest!

Thank you for the excellent pattern, I look forward to knitting the vest!

I love love love this pattern, I've been looking for a really deep V vest but I'm wondering if its possible to knit without the argyle? Not that the argyle isn't rad, because it is, I'm just not sure I could do it! I feel so silly for asking...

I finally have my pattern and I can't wait to get started! I just wanted to thank you ahead of time for the meticulous directions, charts, etc. $5 is an absolute bargain for all of this information, especially for us neophyte fair islers. Add a few more steeked patterns and you'd have one kick ass book! Thanks again, you rock ---

*Awesome* pattern!

A few questions: bust is referring to the largest measurement, *not* bra band size or similar? (I'll be looking at the elusive 52"?!! for my knockers, unfortunatly).

And yarn requirements/recs/yardage?

*LOVELY* pattern and one I'm *very* interested in knitting! (My first color-work even!)


I'd also need the elusive 52" for my 'knockers' - what are the odds?

Hi, I was wondering what the yarn requirements are for the different sizes. I just noticed a great sale on DK wool, and want to make sure I get enough.

Eunny! How did you do those SCHEMATICS??? A) they're GREAT! b) I need those! Is it software??
that vest is killer!
