Root Cellar

vest square

Root Cellar is an earthy, comforting vest in the colors of yams, potatoes, beets, and onions. It’s rustic but stylish – just the thing to warm your core on cold winter days. I really love this vest, it entered my regular wardrobe rotation the moment the photo shoot was complete. It’s warm, woolly, earthy, pretty much everything I want in my knitwear.

vest buttoned

You can favorite and queue Root Cellar on Ravelry. The pattern is written in 9 sizes from 29″ to 62″ and works up quickly at 16 sts/22 rows per 4″. The photo shoot was held at Fat Toad Farm and the lovely model is my good friend Calley (and her caprine friend is Flossie the goat)

vest side

The vest is worked in two different yarns. Plymouth Mushishi in their evocatively named “01” colorway gives the browns and beet colors in the vest. Malabrigo Merino Worsted “rich chocolate” colorway adds the burnt orange (hey, I don’t name the colors, clearly). If you’re having trouble finding them both, my LYS Kaleidoscope Yarns has them for sale online!
I also think this vest would be a really great way to show off a single skein of handspun. You only need 180 to 380 yards of the CC colorway, which should be just about perfect.
