9749 Waistcoat (age 12 up)

This design is the subject of the bestselling book The Sensuous Vest*. It is a Texturefest. Knitting and purling alone-- at the edges and on the collar-- is nowhere near enough; one must needs have the staghorn cables flanking the front opening, and the knit-one-below action panels flanking the armholes. Only then can the knitter be truly satisfied, in the making and in the wearing. Drop-shouldered with no armhole shaping at all, but the shoulders are very much rounded down to prevent a sticky-out flange.

*just kidding!
