A long, light-weight, open-front vest perfect for layering with tanks and tees. The simple stockinette is accented with Barbara Walker’s Jacquard stitch on the shoulders and mid-back. A double-knit hem and I-cord edges mean no finishing. Choose a yarn with a nice drape for best results.
My great-aunt Obeira was a quiet lady who lived with Aunt Aileen after they were both widowed. She was a snappy dresser, had curly grey hair, and wore glasses that would be called Harry Potter glasses today. She also had the coolest name of all the great-aunts. I think she would have rocked this vest :)
This pattern uses short rows and the three-needle bind off for the shoulders. You will need to know how to pick up wraps for short rows.
