Spectacular warm vests. When a large mating only plus!


Vests of large knit always look impressive and stylish. Volumetric, with a clearly defined texture, they look self-sufficient, even when using the simplest mating. Shorter and long, free and sitting clearly on the figure, they not only decorate, but also warm.

Sometimes knitting is so large that the hook or knitting needles have to be made to order.

The hood or collar can be a spectacular detail of the vest.

The decoration of this vest are huge braids.

Vests with shelves often amenable to modeling. Adorned with decorative clasps or intercepted by the belt models look different.

In the presence of the scheme to tie a vest under the force of even novice needlewomen.

Another vest with a relief pattern. You can make it both monophonic and multicolored. For the second option, it is preferable to use a sectional dyeing yarn, it will be equally interesting to look at a model made of melange yarn.

The pattern is constructed in such a way that allows you to tie the vest in several sizes -36/38 (40 / 42-44 / 46) 48/50. To work, respectively, will require 500 (600-600) 700 g of thick yarn (100 g of yarn of approximately 70 m) and knitting needles No. 12. Knitting density - 9 points x 11 p. = 10 x 10 cm. Pattern's report in height - 4 rows, in width from * to *.

We collect a multiple of 3 loops + 2 edge and knit edge edge.

The main motive:

1st row: 1 edge, 2 persons. * 1 nakid, 3 facial (1st front loop of knitted, stretch through 2 following *, 1 front, 1 edge.

2nd row: 1 edge, purl, 1 edge.

3rd row: 1 edge, 1 front, * 3 front (1 of the knitted front loops stretch through the next 2, 1 nakid *, 2 front, 1 edge.

4th row: as 2nd.

Where, because of the delays, the report of the pattern gets off, the row should be finished with facial ones.

Align right: 1 edge, 1 front, 2 loops together front.

Along the left edge: we remove 1 loop, as well as with the front knitting, 1 face through which, after knitting, the removed loop must be stretched, 1 face, 1 hem.

Knitting features

When knitting shelves and backs, we collect the required number of loops multiple of 3 plus edge ones. After the first seamy row, proceed to the knitting of the main pattern and knit a straight fabric until the beginning of the subtraction.


For the back: after 40 (42-42) 42 cm for the armhole we close 2 loops on each side. We continue to turn down 1 loop in each second row. The total number of reductions depends on the size of 2 (3-4) 5. At the end of the work close the remaining loops.

For shelves: here the decrease from different sides is not the same.

For the neck, the decrease begins after 36 (38-40) 42 cm from the initial row. First, we subtract 1 loop, and then in each 2nd row we subtract 11 more times, 1 loop each.

For an armhole, a decrease begins at 40 (42-42) 42 cm from the initial row at the beginning, closing 2 loops, and then in each second row another 1 loop. The total number of reductions depends on the size of 2 (3-4) 5. At the end of the work, close the remaining shoulder loops.

After the parts are connected, we moisten them, let them dry in the straightened position, and then we join and sew buttons. Due to the fact that mating is large, the slits under the buttons in the vest are not needed.
