Fiddlesticks Knitting Patterns and Yarns
This long, elegantly flared vest featuring Japanese stitch patterns is a sophisticated addition to the wardrobe. Worn over T-shirt and jeans or leggings, or dressed up over a blouse and wide trousers, it makes a stylish statement that is sure to attract attention!
Vest is knit in one piece from bottom edge to armholes, where work is divided for fronts and back. Front facings and collar are knit together with body. Shoulder seams are sewn, then stitches are picked up for armhole edges. A large brooch or other closure of your choice fastens the vest. Sample is shown in Size 1 (33.25 inches).
NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting Patterns use charts.
