Dorothy Siemens

for Fiddlesticks Knitting   2006


This sporty vest is a more elegant version of your favourite fleece vest and will look great with dressier slacks as well as jeans. The easy-to-knit slipstitch pattern gives it colour and textural interest, and the zippered front gives it a clean, fresh look.

The vest is worked by knitting in one piece to the armholes, where the work is divided for fronts and back. After shoulder seams are sewn, simple seed stitch edgings are worked at armholes and fronts, and a seed stitch collar is knitted on. Finally, a separating zipper is sewn in (photographic instructions in the pattern).
