July 14: To honour Malala Day, July 14, 2014, today and tomorrow I will donate 50% of Tricksy Knitter pattern sales to the Malala Fund.
Galiano Vest is a sweet little vest with charming details, designed to show off your favourite fingering weight yarn. A pretty chevron lace border flows neatly out of corded rib. The corded rib front bands flow over the shoulders and meet at back. A button loop closure is a great opportunity to showcase some special buttons. Visible neckline decreases and side shaping flatter the figure. Virtually seamless with knit-in front bands, Galiano is a quick knit.
