The Killabrew Vest
There are six miles of gravel and blacktop road to the nearest four way stop sign from our farm. That’s Lost City, and from that intersection Killabrew Road winds east along the Fourteen Mile Creek bottom.
The Killabrew Vest uses Jamieson & Smith jumper weight yarn. It is worked in the round from the hem up and has steeks for the armholes and v-neck. It’s handsome, straightforward, and suitable for any gender.
There are fifteen sizes to choose from, and I have created a table specifying how much yarn is needed for each.
The pattern has two versions of the only chart, which I did to make reading the chart more straightforward for someone who prefers to flip the dark and light values of the ribbing, main color, and background. It looks good both ways.
The photos of Brian here show a vest done in two colors, however, as seen in the photo of me, I’ve included the possibility of a small accent color, which I placed on round 9 of the chart. This is a good way to add a bit of pop or interest and liven things up a bit. I also like to think that a knitter might take this opportunity to use a bit of special yarn, or something she didn’t have much of, making the garment a little more special.
