’Alexis’ was named after one of the character of the 2021 Golden Globe award winner for best TV comedy: Schitt’s Creek.

 

Knit from the top-down seamlessly, this lacy drop shoulder vest is knit with a Worsted weight yarn and a strand of mohair held together. We start by knitting the back piece flat to the underarm. Stitches are picked up to knit the front flat to the underarm as well. Front and back stitches are then joined to knit the body in the round. Stitches are picked up to knit the collar and the arm trims in the round.

 

This is a quick and satisfying project on large needles.
