The vest I am designing to be knit during the frenzy that is the Knitting Olympics/Ravelympics. It’s a twisted stitch cable from my much poured-over trio of books on Austrian twisted stitch cables. I can spend hours just staring at those patterns. I love the curves of this pattern, the sinuous circular forms so seldom seen in knitting.
Questions I’m asking myself:
Do I want to border the cable panel with a line of single twisted stitch on either side or do I prefer the look of it alone on the purled background?

Do I want to do a simple twisted rib as edging or go with a repeat of a cable – either the X or the O variation?
(I played with this second cable. Staring at it for a while while knitting a simple sock, I realized that if I knit certain rows I’d get an X instead of the beautiful O. So I tried it out. It worked like a charm!)
Do I want to try for a more tunic length given the amount of yarn I have?
What fun that Vest-uary, the Olympics, and my love of grey knitwear are all coming together!
