Summer Vest 2021 – Materials
Join this summer’s hottest trend and, together with us at Järbo, knit the #summervest2021! For the third year in a row, we’ll run our much appreciated summer knitalong. We hope you will also want to join us this time!
Stitches and Techniques:
Knitting from the bottom up, back and forth
The Vest model
This year’s summer vest is a seamless, straight model – with button closures and lace panels out to the button bands. The vest is worked from the bottom up, focusing on professional details and finishing, with exciting cast-on and bind-off techniques.
DESIGN: As usual, Maja Karlsson is our designer.
