Folk Vests

25 Knitting Patterns and Tales from Around the World by Cheryl Oberle

Vests are festive, warm, easy-fitting, and practical?just the thing for contemporary knitters, who will delight in these 25 traditional and innovative patterns collected from around the world and through the ages. Both functional and decorative, these wonderful projects for men?s and women?s vests are accompanied by folk stories and regional histories from the countries of origin: Germany, Nepal, Peru, Japan, and the United Kingdom, among others. More than a pattern book, this is a book of inspiration, appreciation, and history. Readers will feel connected to the cultures behind the projects as they bring these traditional designs to life.
