Redhook is worked in one piece, back-and-forth in rows, from the bottom-up on circular needles. The deep shawl collar and ribbed cap-sleeves are shaped using short rows and are picked up and worked directly from the body of the vest. The long, tunic-like shape makes a great garment for fall layering and is a perfect medium-sized project for those yarns in your stash that are just short of a full-sweater’s-worth. Redhook is at once both chic and comforting — two wonderful attributes for any garment!
