    Description

    What a great vest to wear over a shirt! Using strands taken from the self-patterning yarn, the squares of colour on the back echo the stripes on the front to great effect. Because it’s sleeveless, it’s really built for action!

    Skills required: working intarsia from written instructions, increases/decreases, short rows, three-needle bind-off, knit-on edging, picking up stitches, buttonholes, seaming

    Gauge: 30 sts and 42 rows = 4" / 10 cm in stockinette stitch using larger needles

    Finished chest: 21 (24, 26, 29 ½)” / 53.5 (61, 66, 75) cm
