Sideways Garter St Vest

Sideways Garter St Vest Tickets, Wichita | Eventbrite.


Class Dates:

Saturdays, 10:30am – 12:00pm




A rectangle of garter stitch with two well-placed slits for armholes, nothing could be simpler to make…or wear. “Sideways” because it’s knit that way, the Sideways Garter Vest is designed for effortless versatility. Wear it longer in the torso and shorter at the collar, or for those especially windy Wichita days, flip it upside down for a more generous collar and cropped body.
