Pattern: Josefina Waistcoat

24 ready to ship

Comfy waistcoat with waterfall front. Knitted sideways with short-row shaping for fit and lovely drape. The version in the pictures was knitted in Noro Kibou, a lovely blend of cotton, wool and silk in a range of self-striping colours, but this pattern looks equally interesting in a solid or semi-solid yarn.

It is knitted in one piece from side to side. It can be knitted on straight needles but you may find a circular needle easier as you won't have to hold up the knitting as it gets heavier. Edging around the armholes is knitted in the round.
