I knitted this gilet in 2018 for a competition. It even won its section. But the truth is, it's not my style and I'm never going to wear it. It's knitted in a lovely cotton yarn, a pity that it sits in the cupboard unloved. So I decided to take a leaf from my friend Dorie's book and unravel it. Apart from one section that I tried to undo from the wrong end, it was a much easier process than I'd imagined. I learnt that ladder stitch is easier to undo than back stitch! My plan is to knit Jack a sleeveless pullover. He's wearing the one that I rehabilitated day in and day out. It needs a wash now and then!
