Lucy Vest

Some of my readers who liked the Lucy Vest that I designed for my TKGA Hand Knitting Program have inquired about the pattern. I’m happy to say it is now available!

The Lucy Vest uses an easy-to-memorize ribbed eyelet stitch pattern.

Careful attention to detail includes a V-neck which flows out from the center rib.

Strategically-placed decreases in the ribbed armhole and neck trim add shaping and cause the ribbing to lie flat.

The pattern¬†uses the lovely Zara yarn from Filitura di Crosa. It’s the perfect choice for great stitch definition! I also chose it because it comes in a large range of colors. The pattern offers seven sizes, from a finished bust of 30″ to 55.5″. The vest is meant to be worn with 1-3″ ease. It’s available on Ravelry or below through my AudKnits Pattern Store:

Many thanks to Gale Zucker for the wonderful photography. I just love the top image – it’s perfect for this time of year when we’re all loving the corn from our local vegetable stands!
