Vest for men. Plus size. Free knitting pattern.
Today we publish the following free knitting pattern from our cycle (https://knitinspire.com/blog/20?c=10).
This is a vest for a man with a non-standard figure: a large girth of the abdomen and tall stature. Vest size is US 64 / EU 64 / GB 62 / International 10XL. There are many patterns free and not-free paid, but almost all of them are for standard sizes. Finding a pattern for a figure with features is not so easy.
Basic dimensional data of the figure for which the pattern was created:
|circumference in the widest part of the abdomen||55||140|
|neckline depth (front)||8||20|
We have previously published a sweater for a man with such a figure. The graph pattern of the vest is different from the graph pattern of the sweater. This is another option that allows you to get a very comfortable garment.
The front of the vest is widened and lengthened. If in the sweater pattern we made lengthening the central part of the front on the bottom line, then, in this case, we achieved this thanks to paired horizontal darts. The darts are located along the side seams of the part. They are arranged in parallel. The total number of tucks is determined by the difference between the length of the front and back, which we need to get. As a result, the vest is balanced in a way that the man is as comfortable as possible: the vest does not rise on his stomach during movements and there is no excess fabric on his back.
The vest has a deep V-shaped neck, which visually makes the silhouette slimmer. The neck, armholes and the bottom of the vest are trimmed with yarn of a different color.
This pattern is suitable for yarn length 120 yards (ca. 110 meters) per 50 gram (ca. 1.8 oz.) — DK yarn and knitting needles US-11 (8 mm). Knitting gauge is 16.9 stitches & 30 rows in 4 inches (ca. 10 cm) - garter stitch. The total amount of yarn required for the garment is 1495 yards (1367 meters).
