Isabel Vest Knitting Pattern
by Max and Herb
Rock the power shoulder trend with this gorgeous handmade vest. Knitted from the bottom-up, this vest has all the right details: the perfect length, an easy-to-make high collar, and a V shape effect that will flatter all body types and sizes. It is a layering piece, blurring indoors and outdoors. A solid silhouette that will surely give you a boost of confidence.
This vest is knit flat, turning your work at the end of each row. It is knit from the bottom-up in two separate pieces: the back and the front. Then, the two pieces are seamed together on the side using the mattress stitch and shoulders joined with 3 Needle Bind-Off technique. The pattern includes videos tutorials to all techniques used!
Knitted with our luxurious Botanic Wool, this beautiful pattern has a great fit perfect for all seasons.

GAUGE — 10 cm / 4” = 17 stitches and 28 rows (after blocking) in pattern stitch using 5 mm (8 US) needles. Please note that The Botanic Wool blooms after washing it, so I recommend making a swatch and washing it to ensure your tension sample is the tension recommended for the project.
