Passap Wool Vest with Knit-In-Trim


This is a Sylvia Jones sweater design with Knit in Trim. The center band and armholes are knitted on back bed while knitting  main stitches on the front bed. Once I changed the setting on my back bed as suggested by Pat Groves of the Yahoo group, I was successful. This is Jaggerspun Maine Line 2/8 Wool. The original pattern is a pullover but I don’t like pullover vests so I made into a cardigan. Also, because I made my sweater larger than pattern I could not do back neck trim like pattern said. I had to do 1×1 to pull the neck in and it looks fine.

The second  picture shows the close up of the bands and the machine knitted applique flowers that I put on so that it wasn’t so plain. I am sure you can knit the flowers on the passap but I cheated(uh oh!) and used my Brother machine because it was faster. I was able to finish the vest in one day and I did the flowers in an evening and took about an hour or two to sew them on.

    Beautiful. When you wear this vest you will get lots of compliments. You were able to finish in a day , by hand knitting it would take me a month…Thanks for sharing
