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.
