Knitalong – Agua Rios Vest, Part 1
Join knit and crochet designer Kristin Omdahl for the first installment of the Agua Rios Vest pattern. This feminine vest is a classic design for all ages. With lace panels on each side, the rest of the vest is relatively easy to knit with the shaping of the vest done by changing needle sizes. Kristin will get you started with a list of supplies and notions and demonstrate how to cast-on for this top-down knitted vest, showing you were to place the stitch markers for each portion of the vest.
