Vaudeville is one of 16 designs in  Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits

(available from Shephardess & other stockists)

The ultimate comfortable tunic, Vaudeville winds its way back and forth in the usual Ziggurat manner, and ends with generous side slits and a peekaboo lined hem. Play with your leftovers to create hidden gems at cuff and hem linings.

Vaudeville is, unusually for me, another V-neck. For some unspecified
reason I have decided that V-necks do not suit me. Nevertheless, even as a selfish knitter who both designs and knits mostly for herself, I wanted to offer at least one or two V-necks to my knitting friends. Discovery: this V-neck really suits me. Who knew? Maybe it will suit you, too!

The yarn is another favourite from The Uncommon Thread, a single ply merino in a warm, subtly and beautifully shifting grey. The luminous contrast colours are Ripples Crafts Yarns single ply merino, which has such lustre I could swear there is some silk in them. The model is also a favourite.
