French Mistress Vest Pattern: knitted
The interesting construction of this vest, worked in different directions, holds your interest while making it and is best suited for the intermediate knitter.
It is worked beginning with the center back panel, then stitches are picked up along the sides and worked separately from side-to-side around to fronts. Stitches are then cast on for front panel and worked back and forth while joining body stitches. It is worked on size 8 needles using my lovely Hand-dyed Worsted Bundle yarn, that is a heavy worsted-weight wool. The only seaming is the shoulder seams.
