Jill Wright's popular Racey Vest features a crocheted back panel and a knitted body. First, make the square motifs for the back, joining as you go, then pick up along the motif edge and knit the body. The body is knitted flat, then folded according to the schematic to create the vest shape. Add a crochet edging and you're done. The pattern calls for Cotton Supreme Sequins, but Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme is a perfect substitute for gauge and yardage. This pattern is written and contains a schematic. The Racey Vest is also available as part of e-book Cotton Supreme Book 4: Fresh Air.
