Taylor

Stylish shaping and patterning on this vest is reminiscent of a gentleman’s tailored waistcoat. Intarsia shapes on the front echo the striping created with self-patterning yarn on the back. Applied I-cord on all the edges provides the finishing touch for this waistcoat.

Any self-patterning sock yarn or even hand-painted yarn that will give you gauge will work. This vest would also be fun knit with many remnants of solid yarns from your stash.
