Fraulein Zippered Vest

I love to create… it doesn’t matter what the medium is, I’ll give it a try… Well with that wall of yarn behind me, I have no choice but to create something out of yarn. Hence the process began in designing a sweater. Last fall we had received an email from a group of ladies asking that Knit Picks would have more patterns in larger sizes using DK weight, well I couldn’t resist the challenge! Fraulein Zippered Vest is the result. It was a little harder than I thought it would be. Well maybe not harder but more steps than I realized and a little hand holding was needed. The design was done with the larger woman in mind: vertical stripes, longer length in DK cotton yarn. The Fraulein got her name from the German Ribbing that was used to create the “stripes”. I can’t wait to create one for myself. The yarn is waiting, now I need to find the time! <
