Brocade Dandy

January 1991
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
31 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches
in charted pattern on larger needles
US 3 - 3.25 mm
US 1 - 2.25 mm
US 2½ - 3.0 mm
953 - 1503 yards (871 - 1374 m)
99, 104.5, 110 cm /39, 41, 43.25 in

A vest knit in an intarsia pattern of brocade based on a mid-nineteenth century Italian silk brocade gown.

Use either 3.0 mm or US 3 for the larger size needle.

The sample for men was made from Edina Ronay Silk & Wool and Fine Cotton Chenille; the women’s version used Edina Ronay Silk & Wool and Mulberry Silk. Yardage reflects the minimum women’s through the men’s largest.

Errata - There is an error in the chart on rows 87-91 on the left front in the middle of the center motif. A comparison of both sides will show where a set of B should shift 1 st to the right.
