This elongated wrap waistcoat is a great addition to a summer wardrobe. Knitted in Patons Serenity DK, it has lovely drape and softness, thanks to its blend of 50% cotton and 50% bamboo.
Our waistcoat is made in white, which is perfect as a go-with-anything colour. The real interest of this simple wrap is in the deep edging which is knitted in a lacy cluster stitch. Cluster stitch gives a crochet effect round the edges of the waistcoat. The wide edging gives you room to close the waistcoat with your choice of shawl pin or brooch.
Patons Serenity comes in a range of summery colours – there are summer brights and soft pastels to tempt you into knitting this free pattern. If you like this waistcoat you might like to look at our other free knitting patterns featuring various combinations of the design – scalloped edge cardigan, short-sleeved cardigan and the three-quarter sleeve version.
