PATTERN DETAILS

The Sebasco Vest is an elegant transitional piece that takes the chill out of overly air-conditioned offices and cool evening breezes. It is knit in pieces from the bottom up, with a collar worked sideways that can be worn open, closed, or even belted, as desired. The textured trimming stitch of this vest should be worked on larger needles to ensure an even size. A note on sizing: The back measurement of this pattern is slightly smaller than you'd expect given the finished bust size; the front measures more than the back due to the stitch panels. Please check the schematic before selecting a final size! As with many of my designs, vertical darts for waist shaping keep things trim and flattering and allow for extremely flexible shaping, customized to fit your body. Should you desire less waist shaping than specified, you can omit or decrease the shaping rows entirely on the front of the tank. Bustier women can accommodate their needs by performing more increases on the front of the sweater, and not in the back. These extra stitches can be decreased into the neck edge of the vest. As with all sweaters, carefully examine the pattern schematic to note potential modifications before you knit. Berroco's Ultra Alpaca works up to a wonderfully lofty fabric at this gauge. The heathered colors that Berroco offers look fantastic and the alpaca's drape is just right for the vest's style. Should you desire to substitute yarn, please choose something that will work up as an airy fabric that will keep its shape. The vest will require approximately 500 (556, 581, 637, 674, 719, 744, 866, 933, 1014) yds/457 (510, 532, 583, 617, 659, 682, 793, 854, 929) m for an alternate yarn.
