Pattern Description: “Carla Giuffrida designed this wonderful Circle Vest. I was fascinated when she walked by my booth at Stitches East, and I asked the usual question: ‘How did you knit this?’ So here is her pattern. I knit it in summer jewel colors while Carla’s version (on page 38) is an earthy palette, so we each showed our individual flair. The vest is fun to knit. From experience, I promise you’ll have lots of knitters wondering what you’re doing while the vest is on the needles and in progress. The way the colors change as the circle gets bigger is fun to watch and will keep you knitting far into the night.” p. 36
