Pattern Details

Voe Vest worked entirely in the round is a great quick fair isle project using DK weight yarn. The stranded colorwork is simple alternating smaller and largers motifs. The neckline and armholes are steeked, and then stitches are picked up for the ribbed borders. My Craftsy class the Fair Isle Vest: Stranded and Steeked will teach you all the skills you need to know to knit this vest.
