Product details

Balboa is an unusual waistcoat design, which is superb for protecting your neck and back against chilly evenings and is so light, you almost forget you are wearing it (apart from the copious amounts of compliments you’re getting)!

Balboa grows quickly and the constant shaping and edge pattern makes it both interesting and fun to knit. The short-row shaping technique ensures the garment fits into the small of your back and each row includes the fabulous blackberry stitch border giving textured detail to the collar and edge.

The shaping is extremely flattering and this is an interesting and fun project to make; something to snuggle into during the cold winter months. Balboa can be fastened at the front with a broach, button or pin to give an extra indication of the hour-glass figure.
