The Design

“Versatile charm.”

We love the versatility of this piece—its look changes by simply adjusting the ties. Wrap and tie it across the front for the charm of a worker’s apron or kitchen coverall. Or wear it open for an elegant, elongated drape. Or lower the tie placement for more asymmetry. And with a stitch pattern that’s attractive on both sides, we’re touting its reversibility!

We knit the Wrap & Tie Apron Vest with two lace-weight yarns held together throughout—Isager Bomulin and Silk Mohair. Soft, smooth, airy Silk Mohair brings a silky touch and gentle halo to Bomulin’s sleek blend of cotton and linen. Together, they add an intriguing depth to the dynamic acorn stitch fabric!

Pick up the pattern below and choose a color–see the Basic Details tab for how many skeins you'll need of each yarn for your size. To see all available colors of Bomulin and Silk Mohair, head over to the Isager Bomulin and Isager Silk Mohair pages.

18 locking markers.

26 sts/32 rows = 4"/10cm in acorn stitch, after blocking.

Make sure to read through all instructions before beginning your vest. Once you separate the fronts from the back, you will be working armhole shaping at the same time as you work the front edge decreases. For sizes M, L & XL, you will need to track double-dec rows along the front edge. We find it useful to use locking markers to keep track of rows worked.

We like using needles with long tapered tips to help with the pattern stitch. Allow yourself plenty of time to let your vest dry, since there are three layers!
