The Dalsjö vest is similar to its cousin, the pullover vest, Nordansjö – both are modern and stylish with an accommodating and interesting construction. The technique will remind you of brioche and, like brioche knitting, it takes a bit of practice. However, with a light hand and the U. S. J-10 / 6 mm hook, you’ll soon finish this basic garment. It slips on just as well over a shirt or t-shirt as a dress.
