From the book: “Annie Modesitt was inspired by the shape of a fifteenth-century quilted vest from China. True to Folk Style form, this knitted vest marries duplicate stitch and European French-knot embroidery techniques with Asian shaping”.

Please note that while the yarn used is a fine gauge yarn, it is held doubled throughout, which accounts for the size 7 needles, the large quantities noted and the gauge. This is covered in the errata noted above.
