The preview for Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010 is up here! This issue is filled with so many great patterns I can't decide which I will cast on first!
My pattern is the Loretto Vest, is a yoked vest that emphasizes simple stitch textures. The hem, armhole bands and button bands are worked in 2x2 rib, the collar is worked in double moss stitch, and the body is worked in stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch. The slanted yokes are outlined by a 2 stitch cable. The vest is worked in one piece until the armholes then the fronts and back are worked separately. A faux side seam is created by a column of purl stitches, with the waist shaping on either side. Wood buttons are the perfect accent for this mustard colored vest.
