Chunky Vest is a thick vest, worked in brioche stitch that is perfect for cooler summer evening as well as with a shirt under a winter jacket on a cold January morning. The vest is worked back and forth, bottom up with double thread on thick needles. The front bands are picked up at the end and are worked with single thread on thinner needles. The combination of needle size and knitting technique creates a cool effect, with the heavier brioche next to the delicate stockinette stitch. Brioche stitch is stretchy and moves nicely when worn. The front bands in stockinette stitch create a perfectly fitted frame and give the jacket a neat finish.
The vest is designed to be worn with approx. 15- 20 cm positive ease (15- 20 cm larger than your bust measurements). The stated measurement above is for the finished garment.
