How to Knit a Women's Sun Model vest with Two Knitting Needles
If you're interested in learning how to knit a women's sun model vest
, you're in the right place. This is a versatile and stylish piece of clothing that can be worn during the summer months, or layered over a long-sleeved shirt during the cooler months. The best part? You only need two knitting
needles to get started!Before we begin, let's talk about the materials you'll need. For this project, you'll need:
- A light-weight yarn in your chosen color
- Two knitting needles (size 6-8)
- A tape measure
- A pair of scissors
Once you've gathered your materials, you're ready to get started. Follow these steps:
Step 1: Cast On
To begin, cast on 80 stitches. This will be the bottom edge of the vest.
Step 2: Knit the First Row
Knit the first row, making sure to keep your tension even. This row will be the right side of your work.
Step 3: Purl the Second Row
Purl the second row, making sure to keep your tension even. This row will be the wrong side of your work.
Step 4: Continue Knitting and Purling
Continue knitting the right side and purling the wrong side of your work until the vest measures approximately 14 inches from the cast on edge. This will be the length of the vest.
Step 5: Shape the Armholes
Next, you'll shape the armholes. To do this, bind off the first 8 stitches at the beginning of the next two rows. This will create a gap for the armholes.
Step 6: Knit the Body
Continue knitting the body of the vest until it measures approximately 24 inches from the cast on edge. This will be the width of the vest.
Step 7: Shape the Shoulders
To shape the shoulders, bind off the middle 24 stitches. This will create a gap for the neck.
Step 8: Finish the Shoulders
Continue knitting each shoulder separately until it measures approximately 7 inches from the armhole bind off. Then, bind off the remaining stitches.
Step 9: Finishing Touches
Using a tapestry needle, sew the shoulders together. Then, using the same needle, sew the side seams of the vest together.And there you have it – a beautiful and versatile sun model
vest that you can wear all year round!Happy knitting!
