SHE'S A RAINBOW VEST ENGLISH
This pattern is in English
She’s A Rainbow Vest is a model which is open on both sides and joined by knitted ribbons. Centered on both front- and back pieces wide voluminous cables shaped as chains are placed. The vest is finished with a turtleneck worked in rib.
The work begins at the back piece, by casting on for ribbing with provisional cast on technique. A short piece of rib is made which later constitutes the back of the neck. Stitches are picked up along the longitudinal side of the ribbing and the cables start. At the same time increases are made on each side of every row. Thus, a slanting line is created along both shoulders. Then, stitches are picked up and the right and left side of the front piece are worked individually while at the same time increases are made towards the middle whereby the rounding of the neckline is shaped.
Front- and back pieces are finished individually until desired length and finished with ribbing. Finally, four straps/ribbons are made and attached on both sides joining the front and back pieces.
The vest can be made in one color, stripes, or color fade.
