Eiffel For You
“Eiffel for You” is a beautiful vest with many interesting details. It was knit during my travels in Europe and the mesh and shape of the vest reminded me of the beautiful Eiffel Tower so I couldn’t resist the name!
It is knit from the top down, starting with the back, then the fronts separately. All the stitches are then joined to knit the body. Stitches are picked up in the end to knit the armhole borders and the collar.
