Merino Omslagsvest

This vest is inspired by Tinde, a collection I adore and never have enough garments from. Here is my own version, dedicated to designer Iselin Hafseld. I have chosen a sock yarn available in a number of stunning nuances that create waves in the pattern.

Vest wrap is knitted sideways in one rectangular piece with shaping only for armholes. Wrap can be worn upside down with fronts swapping places, hence creating a smaller neck and a longer vest.

Armhole edging is knitted in the round on a smaller needle size.
