The Wood Road is a seamless cardigan-style vest with a v-neck and applied ribbed bands with an overall garter stitch pattern for the body.
Made using aran/bulky weight yarn it has 10 sizes from 84cm to 130cm. Made to be worn with 5-10cm of positive ease.
Construction is seamlessly from the bottom up so a longer circular needle is required to take the larger number of stitches. Fronts and backs are separated at the underarm and then worked separately to the shoulders with armhole and v-neck shaping. Stitches are picked up for the front and arm bands. Four or 5 buttons are needed depending on size chosen.
