I wanted to try using a widely available and reasonably priced yarn, so I purchased Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted in colorways Spa and Cream. I have used this yarn before and it takes a licking, but continues to look great. It’s really soft and warm.
Well, it turned out fabulous! The Addi Express Pro had no major issues with the yarn. If I knit it again, I would probably do so with Merino wool to see what that’s like.
But here’s the important thing . . . It took only FIVE DAYS TOTAL to knit this vest to completion. The Addi did all the boring stockinette knitting that I would never have done if I had to knit that all by hand.
My project page has all the details if you’re interested. The pattern was EXTREMELY well-written and frankly, the layout was quite beautiful. I highly recommend this pattern for someone interested in making a very nice clothing item with their Addi Express Pro. Check the Sporty Gilet Vest pattern details out here!
