Evening Primrose is a stranded sweater-vest worked from the bottom-up with an allover floral motif. Steeks are worked for the openings at the front, the armholes, the neck, and the pockets. Pattern is sized from 30” / 76 cm bust to 60” / 152 cm bust, with sizing increments every 5” / 13 cm.
Pattern Difficulty: Advanced. Pattern uses stranded knitting, multiple steeks, increases and decreases, knitting in the round, and Kitchener stitch grafting.
