I don’t need to be the one to say it, however the reality stays that summer time is sort of over, no less than in case you’re studying the varsity calendar the place I reside. Sure, it can in all probability be heat in plenty of the Northern Hemisphere for a very long time to return nonetheless, however it’s by no means too early to begin serious about knits for the autumn and winter seasons. And even higher, stitching up issues that you should utilize now and nonetheless put on when it’s colder outdoors.
I believe the Outsized Vest with Asymmetrical Entrance from Cascade Yarns falls into that class. This roomy, boxy vest, designed by Deborah Newton, is labored in wool, so it could be just a little heat to put on as a shirt within the top of summer time, however it’s a very good additional layer for cooler evenings (or buildings) and it is going to be the right additional layer when it’s just a little cooler out.
It’s labored from the underside up in a single piece on an extended round knitting needle as much as the armholes. it is available in six sizes as much as a completed bust measurement of 61.5 inches, and is supposed to be worn with 7 to 10 inches of optimistic ease.
The unique used wool yarn, however I believe you may use wool or cotton blends with good impact, too. The textured sample used on the vest is fairly simple to memorize, however the sample is rated for intermediate knitters.
This sample is accessible at no cost from the Cascade Yarns website.
