The Cutting Edge Vest Kit

The Cutting Edge Vest by Ailbíona McLochlainn
With an overlapping neckband and turned armhole edgings, this basic sweater-vest is as minimal as it is elegant. But the simple design harbours a hidden feature: From cast-on to bind-off, this vest is worked entirely in the round – then steeked open. This method dramatically reduces knitting time compared to typical sleeveless garment construction, eliminating the need to work the back and front sections separately. 

Instructions include options for a traditional v-neck edging, a shawl collar (as shown here), or a clean neckline finish. You can also choose between a straight or an A-Line bodice, and between a continuous or a split hem. 

This pattern is suitable for first-time steekers. Detailed instructions, as well as a diagram, are provided to illustrate the process.
The Cutting Edge Vest is perfectly compatible with Galway Wool, which is an ideal yarn for steeking.
Inclusive sizing to fit up to 150cm/ 60” chest.
The sample shown here is a Size 4, with shawl collar option and split hem. 

Yarn quantities for sizes 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) as follows  –
1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2) 250g skeins
