Texyarns Knitting Patterns 8Ply / DK yarn Cotton Knit-in-the-round Slipover Vests and Tops


Product Information

Cottesloe is a knitting pattern for a vest slipover top with cabled and textured panels (front and back) and slightly dropped armhole bands in four adult sizes. Designed in a cotton DK yarn. 

Note that this is a design that is worked on circular needles in the round from the bottom of the lower band up to the armholes which is then split to work the upper parts of front and back backwards and forwards flat. Finally the v neckband and armhole bands are picked up and knit - again in the round. Be sure to check you have circular and/or  Double Pointed needles (DPNs) at hand.
