Lakeside, a summertime vest
This piece was designed for The BagSmith who is now carrying Trendsetter yarns.
This is a new hand dyed bulky cotton yarn that was surprisingly light weight and super soft! The yarn has a loosely woven tubular structure that helps keep it from being too heavy even though it’s rated as a bulky.
The lightness of this bulky cotton yarn helps make what looks like a form fitting vest have a lot of give.
This vest is knit in garter stitch with openwork inserts. Worked flat in one piece the front panels are folded over and the shoulders are joined with a 3needle bind off. Waist shaping is created by changing the needle size and 2 buttons are crocheted for a front closure.
I would rate this for at least an advanced beginner.
