JB217 Waistcoat (age 10 up)

It's hard for any pattern in a super chunky weight to have slimming aspects, but this one does. First there are the strong vertical cables to give a lean, strong look. The wide ribbing bands at the front have the same effect; likewise the depth of the V neck. The armholes are carved in, too, for a more refined fit before knitting out the armhole bands. The result is a practical, pretty, versatile piece at home in almost any situation.
