When I reviewed the pattern, I was a little nervous about the "Clip and turn". I simply followed the directions and was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. Churchmouse patterns are really well written.
I just read through the pattern and "Clip and turn" has nothing to do with scissors. It is an interesting way to do a wrap and turn. Whew.
With simple styling that lends itself to the classroom, workplace or weekend, this vest is so classic, so quintessential, it could become your uniform. The jumper length has a certain schoolgirl chic. The abridged, hip-length version is a flattering layer without the bulk of a sweater. Either way, it’s a nice little primer of techniques you’ll use again and again.
