This kit provides you with all the yarn you need to knit your own Farrah waistcoat.
Farrah is a wonderfully simple waistcoat knitted in Moss (Seed) Stitch throughout and with handy patch pockets added to the front sections. Farrah is knitted in flat pieces which are then sewn together for a tailored fit. Farrah is worked in three pieces, knitted flat. A small number of increases are worked at the side edges to create the distinctive waistcoat shape before the armhole and front neck shaping is worked. Farrah is designed to be significantly narrower at the front than at the back and is not intended to close at the front. Patch pockets are knitted sideways then sewn in place onto the waistcoat fronts to further add to the 1970s vibe of the waistcoat.
the waistcoat with the structure it needs to hold its shape.
