Product details

A vest inspired by Japan, with only one large armhole, to drape, fold and fasten as you please with a shawl pin or two. You can also use the Japanese Vest as a scarf if you like. The all over reversible dropped stitch pattern is by Lynne Barr. The vest is knitted in one piece, in the beautiful Huldra kamgarn from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, with double hem bands all around.

Yarn: Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, Huldra kamgarn (100% Mondevideo Wool, 200 g cone, 850 m/929 yds).

Gauge: 28 stitches and 36 rows in st st using 3 mm/US 2.5 needle measures 10 cm/4” square after blocking.

Notes: The vest is seamless and worked in one piece with one large armhole. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. The side double band hem is picked up and worked at the end with 2 circular needles held parallel. If you prefer, add for instance 3 stitches in garter stitch in each end instead, or skip the side double band.
