Valley Yarns Show and Tell: 480 Proclus Vest

Share Button

We continue our look at the latest Valley Yarns patterns with this crochet project. 480 Proclus Vest combines two skewed polygons as fronts to create a stunning asymmetrical modern shape.

It is crocheted in Valley Yarns Goshen, which is a wonderful blend of cotton, modal, and silk.

We tried on the 36″ size.

The design of this vest had many of us calling it quirky. It’s nice that there are different ways to wear it, but the sample was a little tight on many of us. We all agreed that it looked fantastic on Katie. In fact, she Buzzed about the project recently her on the blog.

Next week, we’ll check out another project from the Valley Yarns catalog. You can check out the pattern here.

    WEBS really needs to hire me.  You need a tall person to balance out all the petite models ;-)

    I was wondering about that! I plan to make that vest, but now I’m wondering. Don’t you have ANY little (5’3″) fat (200 pounds) old (I’m 68) ladies who can model it! I bought the Northampton RED to make it (nothing shy about THIS little fat old lady! LOL!

    I’d love to see a knitted version in a range of sizes. I, too, am not petite, but I actually think this asymmetry and unusual shaping might take the eye away from my non-waist. But I am not going to take up crochet.
