Petites Feuilles Vest
The Petites Feuilles Vest is an easy, fun knit that is perfect for layering. With its adorable constrasting secret pocket (optional), it’s also great to use up leftover yarn and it lends itself to many color combinations. The shoulder buttoning ensures that the garment is easy to put on and off.
The pattern is both fully written and charted, to accommodate personal preference.
This vest is worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom-up, starting with the garter and leaf hem. The work is then divided for front and back, which are worked flat separately. An optional pocket can be worked. Its lining requires some seaming. Skills required: Cast on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, yarn over, knitting in the round, three-needle bind off (explanations provided).
