Grandpa's Vest is one of the few patterns where I had yarn before idea. I WANTED to design something in Isager Jensen. When I dived into the drawer to find old inspiration catalogs (thank you grandma), I stumbled upon an old picture of me and my grandpa inside one of them. That is, me when I was 1.5 years old. In the picture Grandpa wore a knitted, striped vest. And the rest is history. Unfortunately, my grandfather is dead, but he is one of the men I have looked up to the most in both my childhood and adult life. Therefore; a knitted tribute to my beloved grandfather.
Grandpa’s Vest is a classic vest with a straight cut, double knitted borders and v-neck. It’s designed with a wish to create an old-school 70’s fashion’s vest. Remember to read the entire pattern before you begin. Happy knitting!
