Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • knit and purl through the back loop
  • follow a written pattern

Pattern Description:

Aeon is a modern vest made in a deep, eternal blue. It is constructed from the top down, beginning with the twisted ribbed collar, after which the fronts and back are worked separately until they are joined at the underarms. The twisted ribbing continues down the edges of the fronts, which are designed to be worn open and draping. The fronts and back are split again under the waist to make room for pockets, the linings for which are picked up and created later on. Aeon is simple and sleek and infinitely wearable.

Sample is shown in size 32.5"/ 82.5 cm with no ease through the back. Note that the fronts of this vest overlap quite a bit and are meant to be worn open, so, if in doubt, choose the size with the back width measurement (i.e. the length between bra straps) closest to your own.
