Dad's Vest

I based the look of the vest on the Basketweave Green vest by Kathy Zimmerman in the book “The Best of Guy Knits” (Published by XRS).

But I did not use Kathy’s pattern, instead I took the basketweave pattern from the “Field Guild book.”

Cast on 149 st, worked 2” k2p2 ribbing in size 5 needles, change to size 7 needles and con’t body until 14” from beginning.

Then worked armhole and neck shaping for left and right side similar to what Kathy’s pattern suggested. Work till armhole measures 9”. Work backside armhole the same, and cont’ till the same length as left and right sides.

I’m almost done with back now. Will update when done.
