A Dandy Waistcoat

Contest Entry: Winter 2012 Elann Yarn Project Contest

Knitter/Crocheter: chelsea.polk
Gauge: Worsted / 10 Ply
Project Type: Vests
Project For: Women
Yarn Used: Peruvian Highland Wool
Pattern Used: No pattern; I designed it myself

This project was something I designed because I wanted to use vertical and horizontal shaping on a garment. This project is knit in one piece from the bottom up, and then the garter stitch collar and button plackets were picked up and knit. it uses increases and decreases along a slip-stitched "seam line" as well as short row shaping to accommodate a fuller bust. I learned a lot making this and I had a lot of fun.
