The Mielie Vest
The Mielie (South African Maize) is the perfect transition piece. It’s simple, classic and utterly wearable in a number of fashionable ways. This vest style sweater is knit in stockinette stitch from the top down, mostly in one piece, with waist shaping. A ribbed collar is added once the body is complete, and is folded and sewn down for a thicker, warmer and more dramatic shape. For this knit-along we’ll be using a fantastic yarn perfect for all seasons and ideal for all knitters; available in a huge range of colors!
