Vineyard Vestcomments (0) October 3rd, 2011 in gallery
Vineyard Vest is a super easy project to work up in any type of yarn. The greatest thing about it is that the pattern helps create the shaping so there is no need to decrease or increase as you work the pattern.
The dainty pattern in the vest allows you several options when it comes to closing the vest. You can use a button, shawl pin or ribbon. This would be a perfect project for Lace weight yarns, sock weight yarns or even DK weight yarns. In fact with a swatch and a little math you have the ability to use any yarn from thick to thin. Just simply swatch the pattern in the yarn and needles you wish then, calculate the number of repeats needed across to obtain the size you want.
