Paula Vest Knit Kit
by Max and Herb
Rock the vest trend with this gorgeous modern knitting pattern. This vest has all the right details: the perfect shape, the open stitch, and the oversized fit that will flatter all body types and sizes. I love it because I wear it in many ways! Show off your bodice by wearing it by itself, wear it over your swimsuit during the hot days of summer, or over a shirt during the winter time.
As with any good recipe, the success of this vest lies in its secret ingredient: The City Wool! The texture, weight, shine, drape, and feeling this yarn has, you won´t find it anywhere else. Plus, since it is machine washable, it is easy to care!
This pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up, the stitches are then divided at the armhole, and worked flat. Shoulders are joined with the 3-Needle Bind-Off technique, and a 1x1 rib edging is worked around the collar and the armholes. The pattern includes video tutorials on all techniques used!
This listing is for the KIT only. Kit includes the yarn, tapestry needle, stitch marker, fabric label, and a digital pattern (**knitting needles not included in kit purchase**). After checkout, you will receive the digital copy of the pattern by email.
