As you probably already noticed, knitted waistcoatsagain returned to fashion in all its diversity. This gives us the opportunity to choose the style of the knitted vest to your liking and bind it literally in three days. I propose to consider a classical model, on the basis of which it is possible to create your own version of the product, making minor amendments.
Knitting with needles: female waistcoat
What do we need to work?
- Circular knitting needles on line No. 3.
- Knitting needles №3.
- Half-wool yarn «Cashmere gold», 320 m in 100 g, 3 coils.
- Decorative buttons in tone.
We will knit a women's vest without side seams, with a single cloth. In general, if the design allows, knitting without seams considerably simplifies the process of work and further care for knitwear.
For 48 - 50 sizes we type on the spokes 256 loops,of which 2 are edge bands. We knit an elastic band 2x2 with a height of 30 - 35 cm, then we begin to form an armhole. In the front row we remove the edge band, we sew 60 pips according to the drawing, close 6 pts, we sew 122 p. According to the drawing, close the 6 pts and knit along the pattern to the end of the row.
From this moment, the shelves and the backrest are madeSeparately, the working thread is from the left shelf. In each next facial row from the side of the armhole, close in turn 2, 2, 1, 1, and 1 loop, until there are 54 loops on the spokes. Further, if our vest is female with a V-neck, proceed to the design of the neck. To do this, at the end of each face row, we bind the second and third from the end of the loop so that the second one lies on top, forming a pigtail along the cutout. We close the hinges until the moment when there are 24 loops on the spokes. We make two more rows in the pattern and take off the loops on the stocking auxiliary needle. The left shelf is ready.
In the same way we knit the right shelf, we remove the loops on the second auxiliary spoke.
Female vest: we knit the back
We fix the working thread and knit 122 p. of the front row, then at the beginning of each row we close in turn 2, 2, 1, 1, and 1 the loop for the armhole, 108 spokes remain on the spokes. We knit on the figure 53 series, then in the front we sew 29 loops, close 50 p., Finish the series. In each sequential front row from the side of the neck, we close in turn 2, 2, 1 loops, there will be 24 loops on the spoke. We impose 2 rows on the pattern and remove the loops on the stocking auxiliary spoke. Similarly, we untangle the right shoulder.
To join the shoulder seams, we sew the respective loops of the shelf and backrest together, fixing the seam.
To our women's waistcoat buttoned up,it is necessary to tie a bar with hinges on the right shelf. From the edge we type in the appropriate number of loops and knit a rubber band with a width of 4 cm. Do not forget that for the buttons you need to make loops by tying 2 loops together with the subsequent round, preferably on the wrong loops of the pattern. The distance between the loops is usually 10 -12 cm, the markings should be made from the most convex point of the chest, evenly calculating the number of loops up and down. The belts of the waistcoat are also made out with a bar of the corresponding width.
The finished product is slightly stripped through the fabric, we sew on the buttons. We tied a women's waistcoat with knitting needles, but on the same principle you can knit vests and sleeveless jackets with a simple or Tunisian hook.
