Bolly Waistcoat Knitting Pattern
Bolly Waistcoat is a unisex knit with subtle zig zag details along the hem. The sleeveless knit is finished with ribbed edges along armholes and the v-neck opening. The zig zag effect is achieved by contrasting knits and purls edged by twisted stitches. The piece is worked in the round making it easy to adjust the length as you knit.
