  1. Pic7: double left armhole for short cowl.
    Same pic. Use leather cord to also pin left armhole to back, leaving smaller holes for arms at either end. Try similar approach with vest turned 90% for more fitted look.
    Same pic: knit variation with wider arms. Pin centre left armhole to back, and experiment with hood out of left arm.
    Same pic: wear with right armhole in front at waist. Experiment with twisting armholes together and fasten with shawl pin.

    Wear as loose vest but pin / twist or hold armhole edges straight together and run leather cord through to hold.

    I reckon there is the possibility of a camisole/ vest with armholes at back too. Cross arms and place head through crossed point with body at either front or back. Different twists/ knots would change the way it fits.

    Every possibility lends itself to variation by varying the position of armholes.

    • thank you. all it takes is a does of lys and my knitting friends to fuel me on whenever i get a little dry for ideas. smile.
