Knitted in a mix of smooth wool and soft alpaca boucle yarn, this gilet will not only keep your body warm over the winter, but the cosy texture mixed with the basic shape makes it the perfect garment for layering. The asymmetrical stripes reflect this season’s bohemian runway trends that you can knit yourself and coordinating colours will add a touch of chic to any plain outfit.
There is very little shaping involved so this pattern is great for beginner garment knitters.
The pattern is written in five UK dress sizes, 8-10, 12-14, 16-18, 20, 22. The yarn used is Drops Alpaca Boucle and Drops Alaska.
Happy Knitting, Jane x
