Trellis Waistcoat by Elizabeth McCarten ~ FREE pattern download via Ravelry. Knit in a Sport 5ply and sized 30, 36, 42, and 48 inches Trellis is a fair isle design suitable for a first venture into knitting a steeked garment. The repeats are easy to memorize, the yarn does most of the colourwork, and since there are no sleeves there is no need to deal with stranded knitting on double-pointed needles.
At first glance you’ll love the modern styling of this pullover, until you see the unique back opening and subtle A-line shape. Then you’ll fall head over heels for the Chilla pullover! Worked from the bottom up, the sweater is shown here with ¾ sleeves, but the pattern can easily adjust to full sleeves or a sleeveless version.
