I’m terrified of this.


I absolutely promise that with the right yarn, steeks are a doddle. And we’re right here to hold your hand along the way. This is one of those rare times when I will say knit a swatch – I general am in the school of measuring your gauge on the actual project – but here it really is worth knitting a swatch and cutting it open just to reassure yourself that once you’ve knitted the vest, everything will be fine. And I promise it will be! :slight_smile:
