Eighteen is a traditional Fair Isle vest, knit in the round with steeks at the neck and armholes. The only seams are at the shoulders! Seven colors of yarn are used, with 3 colorways listed on the pattern...or create your own. The color work is charted. This vest was created after a request for a class in a local yarn shop. All effort has been given to keeping the instructions in a logical progression for students. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Stitches used in this pattern are knit, purl, knit two together, and purl two together. There are detailed directions for steeking, and there are many online tutorials. Don't be afraid. Your stitches won't disappear, and you'll wonder why the term "steeking" gave you shivers before!
