Unstructured Vest

Lion Brand« Country«

GAUGE:

10 sts + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Welt pattern.

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.
3/3 RC (3 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k3, then k3 from cable needle.
rev sc (reverse single crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib (multiple of 2 sts + 1)
Row 1 (RS):
K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

Welt Pattern
Rows 1 - 5:
Beginning with a knit row, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
Rows 6 - 10: Knit.
Rep Rows 1-10 for Welt pattern.

Cable Pattern (worked over 27 sts)
Row 1 (RS):
P1, k25, p1.
Row 2 and All WS Rows: K1, p9, k7, p9, k1.
Row 3: P1, 3/3 LC, k13, 3/3 RC, p1.

Rep Rows 1-8 for Cable pattern.

NOTES:

1. Vest is worked sideways in one piece, beginning at right front and ending at left front.
2. Vest is designed to be very oversized.
3. When you see "– 12 sts". in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
