Jess (Vest)

It has been a little while now that I've finished this vest.  Pattern was a little confusing to start with and had to learn the wrap and turn technique again.  Downloading videos was a great help.  This one I found to be the best - it's in french - Wrap & Turn video.

Jess vest

I had a few problems with interpreting the pattern - but then I much prefer french patterns - they are written with logic - sorry Rowan!!   I really like the finished result, so much so, that I'm considering making one for me - yes, even though the instructions gave me grief initially, I'm okay with them now.

Yarn:  Rowan Lenpur Linen - colourway - Tattoo - also in Ravelry.

A bit windy

Love the color

The vest turned out a little longer than the picture, but I guess it's also because the model might be tall.  Maybe it stretched when I blocked it - or maybe it has the tendency to stretch because of the drape.  Don't mind, it's fine that way.   Perfect for Spring weather here in Melbourne.


  1. Nice work! Well worth the effort :)

  2. Lovely :) Do you know where I could find the pattern for this?

  3. Thanks Bronwyn, pattern book is by Rowan called "Misty" by Kim Hargreaves. All yarns used are Rowan. Good luck.
