A cage model women's vest
is a unique and trendy addition to any wardrobe. With its intricate pattern
and stylish design, this vest
is sure to turn heads. If you're interested in learning how to knit a cage model women's vest
, you've come to the right place. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the steps to create your very own vest.
- Size 8 (5mm) knitting needles
- 3 skeins of worsted weight yarn in a color of your choice
- Tapestry needle
Step 1: Cast On Stitches
Begin by casting on 72 stitches. Make sure that your cast on is loose enough to allow for easy knitting
, but not so loose that it becomes too stretchy. You can use any cast on method that you prefer.
Step 2: Knit the First Row
Once you have cast on your stitches, knit the first row of your vest. This will create a foundation for the rest of the garment.
Step 3: Begin the Cage Pattern
To begin the cage pattern
, you will need to knit the first stitch of your second row. After knitting the first stitch, bring your yarn to the front of your work and slip the next stitch purlwise. Then, bring your yarn to the back of your work and knit the following stitch. Repeat this process until the end of the row.
Step 4: Continue the Cage Pattern
For the next few rows, continue knitting the cage pattern
as described in step 3. You will begin to see the cage pattern take shape as you work.
Step 5: Create the Armholes
To create the armholes, you will need to bind off a certain number of stitches on both sides of the vest. The number of stitches you bind off will depend on the size of your vest
and the size of the armholes you want to create. For this tutorial, we will be binding off 6 stitches on each side.
Step 6: Continue the Pattern
Once you have created the armholes, continue knitting the cage pattern until your vest reaches your desired length. You can try on the vest as you work to ensure that it fits properly.
Step 7: Bind Off Stitches
When you have reached your desired length, bind off all of the stitches on your needles. Cut the yarn, leaving a tail that is long enough to weave in later.
Step 8: Weave in Ends and Block the Vest
Weave in all of the loose ends of yarn using a tapestry needle. Once you have done this, you can block the vest to help it keep its shape. To do this, simply dampen the vest with water and lay it flat to dry. Make sure to shape the vest as it dries to ensure that it looks its best.
Congratulations, you've finished your cage model
women's vest! This unique and stylish vest is sure to be a hit, and it's a fun and rewarding knitting project. With its intricate pattern and flattering design, it's sure to become a staple in your wardrobe.
