Image of Cable Accent Vest

Cute vest works equally well with jeans or a skirt. Chunky yarn makes this a quick project and the big cable is vertically slimming

Cable Accent Vest

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Cable Accent Vest Reviewed by Debra Miller on 2014-03-17 **
I had so much trouble with this and
Lion brand helped. I thought I was a intermediate knitter but I guess not. I just had trouble understanding the
Pattern and mine looked nothing like the photo. I have found a easier vest pattern that I will try.
