About pattern

This pattern is available in Norwegian and English. It contains written text and chart.

The vest is worked bottom up, and has crocheted edges instead of rib. If one prefers rib, it’s easy to change it, and it is described in pattern.

The story about Vest Footballstripes

You know the feeling of curiosity to see how things look with a little adjustment? That’s what happened when Ballmotiv 1 was finished. Another idea for the look of the footballs. And to find out how it would work in knitwear, well, there is just one way to find out, isn’t it?

Of course, there is swatches. To make sure the pattern and the colour will look as one hoped for. But sometimes it’s more tempting to make something larger, like a hat or a vest, and take the risk to not be satisfied by the result.

And what a joy when you afterwards have two patterns and love them both!
