The Howland is a relaxed a-line vestigan that flows open at the bottom. It uses a twisted rib for a crisper ribbing, and it has cable panels on both sides of the vest opening. It's designed using Erika Knight British Blue 100 - a DK weight BFL yarn that is incredibly soft, while still having great stitch definition and a soft drape. It's great for layering in cooler months.
If you already know how to knit and purl and want to learn how to work twisted stitches, make cables and do basic garment shaping, this is a great next project for you.
Our Tutorial Design will teach you how to work twisted stitches, make cables, and do garment shaping and seam a garment by integrating our skills videos. You should already be comfortable knitting and purling.
