100% British Wool inspired this iconically British waistcoat - cables and textured sections give a modern twist and a casual vibe. I wanted this design to evoke the idea of country life, cordoroys and green wellies, but still be smooth enough to wear for a pint down the pub - without the wellies.

Notions: Cable Needle; 8 removable st markers; 8 19mm/0.75” buttons; Tapestry needles

PLEASE NOTE: there is an error in the key of the Yarnwise pattern.

The cables symbol is given as a yo, which of course is ridiculous ;-)

If you are stuck email me with a photo of the Yarnwise issue and I will send you a copy of my amended pattern.
