Paula Vest Knitting Pattern
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 it can be worn in many ways! Show off your bodice wearing it by itself, wear over your swimsuit during the hot days of summer, or over a shirt during the winter time.
As any good recipe, the sucess of this vest lies in its secret ingridient: 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 makes it easy-to-care! You can now purchase your kit here!
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 videos tutorials to all techniques used!
