Today’s Classic Elite Web-Letter features a pattern by me!
Pattern: Braided Cable Vest
Designer: Rachel Henry
Available: FREE from Classic Elite in Web-Letter #316
Yarn: CEY Chalet (or Chateau!) — 8 to 10 skeins, depending on size
This is a super boxy vest — no shaping of any kind. All the drama is in the cables. The real secret is the amazing yarn though. Chalet is to DIE for. So lofty, so soft, so LIGHT for such a bulky yarn!
From the pattern description:
This super-cozy vest, shown in Chalet, can also be knit in Chateau, Chalet’s colorful counterpart. A great layering piece, the vest is worked
flat, beginning with the cable in back. The cable turns the corner at the front and stitches are picked up from along the side of the cable band and the body is worked in one piece to the armhole. The vest is not intended to meet in the front and can be worn belted or open at the front.
One thought on “New (FREE!) Pattern: Braided Cable Vest”
Oh my oh my! This is absolutely beautiful! I love it! I can’t wait to get my newsletter and to find out what weight the yarn is, unfortunately CEY aren’t available in Ireland so I’ll have to sub and hope that I have the yarn in my stash as I’m on a yarn diet! Though I may just have to fall off the wagon for this!
