Product description

This vest is worked completely in the round from bottom up and shaped using steeks. After the completion of the body, armholes and neck steeks are cut, then stitches are picked up around each opening and trimmed with 1×1 ribbing using Trim Color. The sample shown was knit using a self-striping handspun yarn, and a solid wool tweed – experimentation is encouraged when choosing stripe and trim colors!

    30 September 2011:

    Page 3, First column: “ESTABLISH ARMHOLE STEEKS: Next Round: Remove marker, knit first 6 (7, 8, 9, 9) sts, now slip those 6 (7, 8, 9, 9) stitches just worked to waste yarn, continue around front, knitting 71 (79, 85, 92, 101), slip the next 12 (14, 16, 18, 18) sts to waste yarn, place SM, CO 5, place another SM, knit until 6 (7, 8, 9, 9) sts rem in round, slip these sts onto the same waste yarn as beg of round, place SM, cast on 5, place 4th and final SM (this will also be your beg-of-round marker), join work to begin knitting in the round.

    11 March 2014:

    (Version 2.0): The pattern has been updated to reflect a striping sequence of 3 rows MC and 3 rows CC, rather than 2, as follows: Page 3, before Begin Striping Sequence: “Switch to Main Color (MC) and knit two rounds. Continue with MC for the following Increase Round:” Page 3, after Begin Striping Sequence: “Rounds 1 – 3: Knit all stitches with Contrast Color (CC). Rounds 4 – 6: Knit all stitches with Main Color (MC). Repeat the last six rounds, establishing striping sequence until work measures 14 (14, 14½, 15, 15)” from cast-on edge.”
