Roniroos pattern now available!

pattern cover

This lovely vest is a great layering piece featuring a little pocket with unusual closure – a button loop that continues into a cable, asymmetrical front and short row shaping on shoulders and armholes.
The vest is worked in one piece to the underarm. From there, both fronts and back are worked separately and shoulders are shaped with short rows. Shoulder seams are joined with Three-Needle Bind Off and armholes are finished with a garter stitch edging that’s also shaped with short rows.

    Kiitos Salla! Toki käännän jos kysytää on, otin saman tien työn alle :)
    10 päivän puserolle on myös tulossa ohje, todennäköisesti joko tämän kuun puolella tai elokuun alussa.

    Epäsymmetriä neuleessa on ihana! Vironkielisenä syntyy tietenkin ajatus, mistä sellainen nimi – Roniroos on kyllä osuva!
