Striation Vest by Amy Herzog

Striation is a classic sweater vest that works for anyone, with fun stripes to help you use up those bits of leftover yarn from much-loved projects. The straight-silhouette, v-neck shape is easy to adapt to anyone you'd like to knit for, in any gauge you like.

This vest is an average-length, sleeveless pullover with V-neck shaping and 1x1 trim everywhere. The hem is trimmed with 1¾"/4.5 cm of rib, the neckline with ¾"/2 cm, and the armholes with ½"/1.5 cm. Dan is wearing this vest with a child's average fit. The neck shaping starts 1''/2.5 cm above the armhole shaping, to ensure this look no matter who you're knitting for.

As shown, you'll need 3 colors of yarn - the MC, and two alternate colors. However, the stripe pattern is flexible, and you should definitely feel free to mix things up however you like - make all the stripes the same color, each stripe a different color, or whatever else your preferences and available yarn dictate.

Striation Vest is available in straight silhouette. Please see our page on silhouettes for a full explaination of silhouettes in Customfit.
