Kinsol Trestle Vest
The Kinsol Trestle is a wooden railway trestle, built in 1911 - 1920, located in the Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. At 44m (145 feet) high and 188m (614 feet) long, it is the longest trestles in the British Commonwealth and one of the highest in the world. Abandoned in 1980, preservation efforts have been underway to include this historic treasure as part of the Canada Trails system so it can be used by runners, hikers, cyclists and equestrians.
This classic pullover vest is worked in one piece to the armholes, then divided for front and back. The vest features a progression from cabled ribbing at the lower edge, through an all over lattice cable pattern, into a herringbone pattern and then to stockinette stitch in the chest. All stitch patterns are given in both chart and row-by-row form.
