Oak Knoll is a design built directly into CustomFit, which means that each Oak Knoll pattern is created specifically to your choice of gauge and size.

Oak Knoll was a featured retreat design at my 2016 make. wear. love. west coast retreat, worked up in two of our wonderful vendor A Verb for Keeping Warm’s yarns. It’s a nice design for the breezy California coast, or anywhere with a warmer season: Vests provide a great layer when you only need a touch of extra warmth, and the vest’s trim has an easy wear-it-open, wear-it-closed style.

Armholes and the vest front are trimmed with rolled reverse stockinette stitch, and the button band is finished with a small amount of 1x1 ribbing to keep the edge from rolling.

To keep with the casual nature of this cardigan, waist shaping is worked on the back of the vest only. The fronts will measure the maximum of your bust, waist, and hip and continue straight from hem to armhole. It’s shown with a longer sweater length, but CustomFit allows you to choose your own sweater length, so your vest will be perfect for you.

I knit this sample in A Verb for Keeping Warm’s Reliquary II and Floating yarns held together, in the color “Zinc”. With those yarns, I preferred a gauge of 5.5 stitches to the inch. But CustomFit will create your pattern to the gauge you specify - and for that reason, it’s difficult to give any kind of yardage advice! To estimate how much yarn you’ll need, I strongly recommend the “Stashbot” app or pamphlet by Hannah Fettig.
