Foothill Vest

"This fun-to-knit vest works up quickly on size 7 needles in garter stitch," says Luters. "Each front and back piece is composed of one large mitered section that is shaped on the edges to form the neckline and armholes. The miter shape creates flattering, subtle vertical lines, accented by a dramatic diagonal decrease line that is worked in a contrasting color." A huge treat for those who enjoy or want to learn modular knitting-- or garter stitch-- or just plain fascinating, beautiful garments. There's no sewing; shoulders and sides are cast off together. The pattern is very detailed and helpful. Gauge given over garter stitch, blocked. A crochet hook is called for, but only to work the buttonhole loops.
