I'm a knitter, mother, wife, psychology grad student, and indi-pattern designer. I teach knitting at Bella Yarns, test/sample knit, take in repairs and finishing work, and occasionally take on commissioned pieces.

Jardin de Vignes (garden of vines) is a pretty and simple pullover vest with waist shaping, perfect for crisp fall days or wearing to the office (when they haven't gotten around to turning off the air conditioning). I wanted to create a piece that combined the rustic nature of Cascade Yarns Eco Wool and Eco Plus with delicate lace stitches and structured cables. I think the end result is timeless, classic, and wearable. Additionally, the pattern calls for 1-2 skeins of Eco Plus, making it so quick and affordable that you'll want to make one in multiple colors!
This vest is worked flat from the bottom-up, and joined at shoulder with a 3-needle BO. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize, and comes with charted and written instructions. It is intended to be worn with 0-2 inches of positive ease. If you are between sizes, select the next size up.
*Although the yarn is listed as "chunky", it is actually Aran-weight* The Craftsy listing does not provide an option for Aran at this time.
