Ilga Leja


Berry Hill

"Add the vibrant colour of berries to your wardrobe with this delightful cropped vest," says Leja. "Its slightly asymmetrical front closure adds further allure. Worked in one piece from the top down, it requires no seaming. Try it on as you knit it and adjust the length as you go. When you are done, just sew on the buttons and wear!" Leja's gourmet knitting patterns are full of detail and tips of every kind. One of many in this pattern is the option for short-row bust shaping: "if your bra size is a C cup or larger, you may wish to add some short rows at this point for an improved fit..." and you're off-- and she includes an option for a D cup or larger, too. A pleasure to read, let alone knit from.
