This vest looks like a traditional yoked sweater but it is knit side-to-side. You cast on stitches at the front edge, knit your way around the back, and end at the other front edge. Several different stitch patterns are used, each worked from written instructions. Stitches are held on holders for the cap sleeves and then completed using short rows. The finished chest measurements are 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52)". The vest can be machine washed in a lingerie bag and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 6 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- 8 cable needle
- stitch markers
- 2 stitch holders
- tapestry needle
