The Herschel Vest has a very deep v-neck. This makes the vest perfect over a shirt where you want to show off details in the front. The vest has an ease of 7 cm.
The vest is named after Caroline Herschel (1750-1848) - astronomer and the first woman to be paid for her research work.
I have knitted my Hercshel Vest in one thread of Arwetta from Filcolana (210m/50g) with one thread of Tilia from Filcolana (210m/25g). The pictured vest is knitted in the colour Red Squirrel (352) in both yarns.
The Herschel Vest has a gauge (tension) of 20 stitches x 26 rows per 10 x 10 cm (approx. 4 x 4 inches) on 5 mm needles (rib on 4 mm). I used approx. 2.5 skeins of each yarn for a bust of 91 cm (+5 cm ease).
The vest is knitted top down. The pattern is unique and calculated to fit your measurements. The pattern is in English and will be sent as a pdf file to your e-mail.
