Fluid waistcoat with waterfall front. Knitted sideways with short-row shaping for fit and lovely drape. The version in the pictures was knitted in Fyberspates Scrumptious 4-ply in the colours Water and Purple.
It is knitted in one piece from side to side. It can be knitted on straight needles but you may find a circular needle easier as you won't have to hold up the knitting as it gets heavier. Edging around the armholes is knitted in the round.
