Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Stockinette and garter stitches / cable stitches

Pattern Description:

Cabled Embrace, a twist on my original vest pattern "Embrace . . . like a warm hug". Knit in a solid or tonal yarn to show off the cable, this vest is another great layering piece over just about anything. Simple short-row details at the bust and hip help to emphasize the cabled waistband and gracefully flow over your curves. Bulky weight yarn and minimal finishing details make this a quick yet elegant addition to your wardrobe.

Pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner who is familiar with cable construction and includes detailed instructions for each half of the vest and instructions or web links for each technique.

Notes: Vest is worked sideways. You will knit the left half of the vest and then the right half, joining them with Kitchener stitch in the center back.
