Motoring Vest

Motoring Vest, inspired by a photo of a sensationally dressed woman modeling beside a Triumph Twin 500 Motorcycle in 1951, updates the modish style in this figure flattering knitted vest. Set your nav to a new and wonderful destination and Motoring Vest will take you there, with oh’s and ah’s refueling you along the way!

Garter sections and shaping highlight specific points on the body creating a flattering hourglass figure. A wide button band draws the eye up and down the hourglass, lengthening the body. A mock turtle cowl is accented with a larger button off set from the vertical panel. Knit in two pieces – the body is worked flat seamlessly (joined at the shoulders) and the button band, which is seamed on at the very end. Arm and neck edging finishes the piece. The tech edited pattern includes written directions and schematics.
