Nancy's Vest

Designed by Carol Sunday

Knit by Laura in Kelbourne Woolens Andorra

Nancy’s Vest, by Carol Sunday, is a classic light layer that will go with anything! This stockinette vest features fine ribbing details and pretty cable decreases. Its slightly slanted, integrated button band creates a subtle A-line shape for a very flattering fit that dips a little in the front and flares a little in the back. Kelbourne Woolens’ Andorra (60% Merino, 20% Highland wool, 20% mohair) is a springy, strong yarn with a vintage vibe and a palette of beautiful colors.
Laura notes: "My favorite part of making Nancy’s Vest is tied between the gorgeous fabric made from Andorra and the new-to-me techniques: no scrap yarn provisional cast-on and the Best Button Band, to name a couple. Andorra’s wooly mohair blend is a wonderful match to the timeless appeal of this vest, and there are so many button possibilities to give it that finishing pop!"

The kit is available in seven sizes, and the kits range in price from $55.50 to $91.50.
