1554 Funnel Neck Vest
This is a fascinating vest for a number of reasons. There seems to be a circular knitting camp, and a flat camp, each with their reasons-- this garment has you work the front and back separately, but then you join the pieces and finish the yoke in the round. Side seams only means minimal finishing, and the flat-campers get the structure that they feel seams provide. The look is intensely modern-- this shape would not have existed a few years ago. And Burgin has done a beautiful job of integrating the hem rib into the cable panel. The back is plain st st. On its own or over something else, this is a wonderful piece.
