Reflections Vest by Heidi Kirrmaier
The Reflections Vest by Heidi Kirrmaier is a gorgeous modern take on a classic cabled vest. It is intended to fit with approximately 2-5 inches of ease, and the shoulders are designed to be just slightly dropped. There are 2 fit options: the Women’s version which has more room in the front than the back for sizes L - 6X, and the Unisex version which has equal front and back widths.
The length from the underarm of the Women’s version is approximately 12-13 inches, while the Unisex version ranges from 13-16 inches. (The length can of course easily be modified, but the noted lengths are what the yarn estimates are based on.)
The vest is worked seamlessly from the top down. First, the front shoulder sections are knit separately to the bottom of the v-neck and armholes. Then stitches for the back are picked up from the front shoulders and worked flat to the bottom of the armholes. The body is then worked in the round. Lastly, stitches are picked up for the ribbing around the neck and armholes.
Finished chest circumference (inches):
XS (35), S (38), M1 (40¾), M2 (43½), L (47¼), XL (50¾), 2X (54½), 3X (58), 4X (61½), 5X (65¾), 6X (70)
Please note that these measurements are final garment chest measurements. Intended to be worn with approximately 5 -13 cm / 2 - 5" of positive ease.
