Lytton by Erika Knight

Lytton is a very simple sleeveless vest, knitted in two pieces. The back is worked in K1,P1 rib and then changes to K2,P2 rib, and finished with a basic cast off for the armholes and back neck. The ‘fronts’ are worked as one long piece in K2,P2 rib. The back and the front pieces are simply assembled to create a basic and stylish layering garment.

Note: Yarn amounts given are based on average requirements.   Erika Knight British Blue is a gorgeous double knit yarn.

If you didn’t want a 100% wool garment, this would be perfect in Katia Basic Merino, which has a 50/50 mixture of merino and Acrylic all in a large range of colours and is machine washable.

If you were to make this pattern in Katia Basic Merino dk you would need 6 ( 8, 8, 10) balls

If you were to make this pattern in Stylecraft ReCreate dk you would need 2 ( 3, 3, 4) balls

Any dk yarn can be used, to work out how much you need simply divide the total number of metres needed by the number of metres in the alternative yarn – i.e. for ReCreate and the small size the calculation would be 660 divided by 350 = 1.88 or 2 balls. We hope this helps, if not call us on 01706 614063
