• hello Grace i have read your pattern and can you tell me

    what KB1 is I cant think what it is unless it is knit through back of stitch

    will you let me know

    all my love LIZ xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    • Hi Liz... yesKB1 is to knit in the backof the stitch... its a very easy rib pattern so hope you will like it too!xx

    • Hi Liz,

      KB1 is definitely Knit into the back of the stitch (I have made Grace's vest pattern before).  If you take a look at the notes at the end of the pattern Grace has also noted it there.

      Have fun with the pattern, it is a lovely one to make.

  • I assume this is made in double knitting weight yarn.  If not, please let me know

    • Hi Judith... yes I usually make this in double knitting weight or you could use two strands of 4 ply knitted together which will give the same thickness...Hope this helps.

      • Hi Grace,

        Just wondering if anyone else has noticed that 2 of your vests are pictured in the recent Amahle and Cloverdene distribution photo's on the KAS Facebook page?  They look good!

  • In case any of you have trouble accessing that document, here is the translation of it:  Thank you Grace!!! xoxoxoxo
