The Prudence Crowley Vest
Designer Note: The original yarn used here (Nashua Handknits Wooly Stripes) has unfortunately been discontinued. I'm often asked for suggested substitutes which then can be discontinued as well. Currently, March 2013, many knitters tell me Taiyo Aran has been successfully substituted. Oct 2013 a reader tells me Mochi Plus from Crystal Palace Yarns is also an excellent substitute. Creative Poems Aran, Kaleidoscope, Odin and Filzwolle Fine Color appear to be an almost identical match to the original yarn. For current substitutes if you have access to Ravelry, do a search on 100% wool yarns Aran weight that are not discontinued. Put the word single in the search box at the top of the screen and you will get the current available yarn matches.
