“I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life, and can’t help but be inspired by the rich knitting tradition we have in this region. Tokul pays homage to the Cowichan sweater and includes great details like reverse A-line shaping and rounded armholes for a comfortable, flattering fit, and a tiny detail I love: the three-needle-bound-off shoulders. Tokul is a fun knitting adventure that will keep you cozy through your outdoor activities for years to come.” - Andrea Rangel

Vest is worked seamlessly from the bottom up. Body is worked in the round to the underarms, then worked back and forth for back and front. Shoulder seams are three-needle-bound-off and shawl collar and armhole edgings are picked up and worked after knitting is complete
