Manos del Uruguay Lafayette PDF
Lafayette from Manos del Uruguay is an open-front vest with lots of cute details to make the knitting interesting. Front pockets, plaited edging, and a close interplay of various stitch textures all come together to make an elegant yet edgy garment. Sweater shown in the photo is knit with yarn held double. For a lighter, more drapey garment, yarn may be used singly at the same gauge. Yarn requirements given are for doubled version.
