Spanish for snowy, Neva is this tabard with side panels. The front and the back panels are covered in a snowflake like cable, while the side panel is knitted in garter stitch. All the panels have I-cords in the side and they are knitted together. Neva is seamless and knitted in the luscious Sølje pelt wool yarn from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.

Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows in st st using 3 mm/US 2.5 measures 10 cm/4” square after blocking.
Notes: The vest is worked back and forth in two separate pieces and joined with a 3-needle bind off at the shoulders. The I-cord is then worked along the side edge before the side panel is knitted and attached to the opposite side using a 3-needle bind-off.
