I keep telling myself I really need to make more things with sleeves (both sewn and knitted) but for the past few years, I’ve been dying to knit a sweater vest. Not a waistcoat — I’ve done that. A few times. — but a pullover vest. There’s an idea I’ve had in my mind a long time, and there’s Grille, and then Bue, and now there’s this fantastic Martin Storey pattern, Whelk. I’m showing you the kids’ version here because this photo is so darling, but it’s written for children through adult sizes, and is perfectly unisex. There’s something funny about essentially painting a bullseye on your own chest, but I just love it.
