I love my son, I love merino and I love seamless work.
I’ve decided to put all my loves into one pattern - a top-down seamless vest, which will be perfect for my son’s birthday next week. :-)
The construction of this vest is quite simple. We use provisional cast-on for the back shoulder line, and work top-down until the armpits. Then we do the same for the fronts using the live stitches that we get from ripping the crochet chain. We work top-down again and join all parts at the armpits. We work seamlessly in the round finishing the body with Garterstitch hem. The same Garter stitch hems are used for finishing the V-neck and armholes.
The design is available in English and Polish.
