Amy Herzog Designs Dunedin Vest PDF
The Dunedin Vest is a V-neck pullover vest with panels of traveling twisted stitches. It is knit in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed together. The back neckline is knit separately in a squared shape using short rows. The hems are worked with perpendicularly-knit cabled bands except for the front cable panel, which is begun separately. Body stitches are picked up from the cable panels. Instructions for an (easier) optional plain hem are also provided. The Dunedin Vest offers a balanced and curvy visual impression that will accentuate the wearer’s curves (or create some where there are none): The amplitude of the traveling stitch is smaller in the waist area, subtly increasing the impression of a smaller waist and larger bust/hips.
