Scotland Yard Vest Knitalong! Sherlocking on January 1!!


"Did you miss me?"
Sherlock season 4 will premiere on January 1 and we are celebrating with a Knitalong! Pattern is the Scotland Yard Vest. Cast on while you watch the first episode of the new season! 


 I am knitting a version for myself using the colors shown above (Brooklyn Tweed Loft in Cast Iron, Tartan and Sap) and adding waist shaping for a more feminine fit. I will be sharing my notes for adding shaping along the way. 


Here are all the details!
1. Cast on happens on January 1 during the premiere episode of season 4 of Sherlock

2. Knitters who complete their vest by February 1 will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to our Etsy shop (email Joanna at slatefallspress AT comcast DOT net to share completed vest photos!)
