Assiut One Slice Swing Vest

Making a simple and easy vest out of an assiut shawl

One of the most simple, easy and affordable items to make out of a standard assiut panel is the One Slice Swing Vest.  This graceful waterfall style of vest works best when made from cloth with intrinsic stretch.  Assiut, with it’s strong hexagonal structure, is at once both extremely strong and quite flexible.  However, I’ve made really nice versions of the One Slice Swing Vest out of jersey and fleece.  If you are worried about making a mistake, you can make a sample first and give it a try.

To make the One Slice Swing Vest, all you need to do is cut a simple straight slice down the center of the fabric 14″ to 20″ long.   Position this slice approximately 3″ – 4″ from one edge.  This narrow edge will become the collar and will rest on the back of the neck.   The longer length becomes the back which will rest from the waist down over the hips.
