A triangle with two sides of equal length. Merino Alpaca and Baby Alpaca held together create a plush chunky weight that perfectly suits this cozy, drapey vest. Isosceles’s clever construction may teach intermediate knitters a few new tricks: it’s knit outward from a center triangular panel, with the shawl collar knitted on at the end. Mistake rib provides lush texture in an easy to memorize pattern. Knit with 1 strand of Merino Alpaca and 1 strand of Baby Alpaca held together.
