Pattern Details

A versatile layering piece that's as fun to wear as it is to knit, Concord Vest features an extra-deep v-neck and an interesting rib pattern on the sides that gives a figure-flattering fit without the need for additional waist shaping. The vest is constructed flat in two pieces. Armhole shaping is worked with double & single decreases rather than BOs (so as to not interrupt the rib pattern on the sides). Then a three-needle bind-off is worked to join the shoulder straps and the sides are sewn together. Best of all, armhole and neck edgings are worked along with the fabricabsolutely no picking up stitches required! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Simultaneous shaping Twisted stitches Reading a very simple chart Seaming Single and double decreases worked on both sides of the fabric (instructions given in pattern) Three-needle bind off GAUGE 22 stitches / 28 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 27 (30.5, 33.5, 36.25, 39.25 / 42.25, 45, 49.5, 53)", or 68.5 (77.5, 85, 92, 99.5 / 107.5, 114.5, 125.5, 134.5) cm.

I gravitate toward designs with clean lines and contemporary (but not too contemporary!) stylings. I strive to make my designs available to knitters in as wide a range of sizes as possible. Things I love: cables, simple lace, strong lines, designs that look far more complicated to make than they actually are, and beautiful, saturated colors complementing each other in stripes or colorwork. Besides designing, I am also an aspiring fiction writer. I work on my novels for kids and young adults novel when I’m not knitting as fast as my hands will go.
