Needed: Fairisle Sleeveless Vest Patterns!

kiwiknitter's picture

I am earnestly searching for fairisle (stranded) sleeveless vest patterns. I want modern patterns because the vintage ones don't fit. I am hopeless at adapting patterns with a repeat design so I would like to go the easy route and just buy new patterns.

Can anyone help here?

Good grief - you're right! I hadn't even thought about that and it's a brilliant idea. That may have just solved my problem. If anyone has information to address my original request, I'd still like to hear from them.
