Grand Valley Vest

from Marilyn King-Black Water Abbey Yarns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Grand Valley Vest
Grand Valley Vest Grand Valley Vest

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, increase, decrease, work cables

Pattern Description:

This vest is knitted from the bottom up, with vents knitted separately, then joined so that the vest is knitted in one piece to the armholes. A dramatic cable is used in the front and back as a "dart" to create gentle waist shaping. A mirrored Rope Cable accents the vents and front of the vest, and the front cable continues to the back to create a lovely back neck edge.
It's fun and easy to knit- and a perfect cool weather piece.
Our sample is knitted in our "Blue Stone" worsted weight yarn.
