BUCV Cardigan Vests from the Bottom Up (any gauge)

A new Unpattern's appearance is like finding a leprechaun-- you get more wishes fulfilled (no tricks, though). Here Alfke addresses one of the Western world's most popular garments: the cardigan vest knitted from the hem up. And she does it in her usual spectacular style. That is to say, she tells you exactly how to do it your way-- with the yarn you like, in the stitch pattern you like, at your own special gauge, in the size you want. It's all here: V-necks, crew necks, 'girlie' shaping if you so desire, back neck shaping (important for a good fit), purl darts if you want them, bands, edgings-- the works. Unpatterns make it possible for you to splurge on yarn and make the absolute most of your money for the rest of your knitting life.
