Grizzly Vest, Elizabeth Smith Knits. Print Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern which also includes a Ravelry download code.
Grizzly is a two-tone vest knit all in one piece with bulky-weight yarn, featuring a large cowl neck and longer back hem.
The construction is all in one piece! You start at the bottom of the front hem and then knit up to the shoulders then down the back to the bottom hem. Stitches are picked up and worked to create the cowl neck, and after blocking the side stitches are picked up and seamed together using the three-needle bind off technique. Completely seamless!
Two different colours were used in this piece - colour A for the front and colour B starts at the very top of the front and then continues down the length of the back and it is also used for the cowl neck (although one colour can be used for the entire garment as well).
Grizzly is an easy knit and makes a great layering piece for the fall and winter months.
