Four Patterns in this Pack
Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
These vests are all knit from the top and worked down to length. Short rows performed on the top back yoke give them a nice fit on the shoulders. Very classy to wear. After the top shaping is done you have many options, add llama motifs, an attractive moss stitch strip, or entrelac knitting. With this pattern set you have unlimited possibilities for adding your own favorite knitting stich. You can add anything, color, cables, lace - anything!
So many ways to make this vest.
- Llama Vest: Perfect version for the llama enthusiast. Knit two cute little llamas designs into the top shoulders of the vest. And more than that- use handspun wool from your favorite llamas! If you happen to have three favorites, you can use three different color llama yarns and add a strip of entrelac knitting to the bottom of the vest.
- Pointed Vest: Great for that "Dress for Success" look. This attractive vest is like a suit-coat vest with a double-pointed tapered front. Very stylish.
- Moss Stitch Vest & Gloves: This is an easy, yet attractive, vest to knit. It features the Shaped Vest's tapered yoke, and has a vertical moss stitch stripe down the front. I made mine with a lightly variegated yarn. Then make some matching gloves.
- Entrelac Vest: These instructions explain entrelac knitting with simple charts to make it easy.
By downloading these four patterns you pay less than the price of three individually mailed! And you don't pay for shipping -- That adds up to big savings.
Yarn Suggestion: Good with virtually any yarn! Will need approximately 6-12 ounces per vest, depending on size.
As with all SpinCraft Knitting Patterns these items can be knit to any size, using almost any yarn. What you will do is measure yourself, measure the gauge that comes from your yarn, and then perform some easy calculations to get the figures needed to knit this piece. You are the designer!
