La Moelle Vest PDF
The La Moelle Vest from Sugar Tree Designs is a knitted vest with braided cables that are reminiscent of a frozen river in winter. The pattern starts with a hem on smaller needles. The directions include hip, waist, and bust shaping with optional short rows at the bust. Short rows shape the shoulders which are grafted together except for the cable edging. All the stitches along the back of the neckline are kept live. They are finished by continuing the cable edging with an unusual but simple bind off. The only seaming is the folded hem.
