Interweave Knits -

Planche Vest

Howdy all! I have another rerelease for you today, the Planche Vest originally published in Interweave Knits Summer 2012. Wow 2012 seems like such a long time ago really, but here we are and this lovely pattern is ready to download from Ravelry just in time for Spring!


I know that with most of the US and Canada in the middle of Snowpocalypse Spring seems pretty far away, but, what better way to while away the winter hours is there than to plan ahead for the warm weather? If you knit this now it will be ready for the first sultry breezes of summer, when you would much rather be poolside.. okay perhaps knitting then as well. BUT you could knit Lace in the summer while wearing the Planche Vest!

This cute biased lace top is worked in worsted weight cotton, Cotton Supreme by Universal Yarns is the sample yarn and it really is a nice cotton to work with. They also have a sequinned version if you are just generally feeling fancy, and I find that this high quality cotton is really easy on the hands.


The lace pattern is a 4 rows repeat and is easy to memorize but be careful you don't miss a yarnover at the end of a pattern section since that will really be a problem. There is no shaping in this pullover worked in the round but there are increases and decreases worked for the keyhole and armhole division. The neck is finished with an applied i-cord edging which joins the left and right back together during finishing.

Thanks to the lovely Gretchen for knitting this sample and modeling it! As you can see she looks perfect in her favorite color: blue. You can find this pattern for download on Ravelry here.
