Salmon Coming Home Vest Pattern




A love song to Cordova, Alaska. Silty river deltas fed by glaciers, mountains reflected in a smooth lake as the sun sets near midnight. A dizzying interplay of water, sky, and land.
A community built on the elemental drive of salmon to return home.

Salmon Coming Home uses 10 colors of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift fingering-weight yarn; it is knit in the round, with instructions for steeks, optional waist shaping, and optional shoulder shaping. The pattern is written for seven sizes, ranging from 34.25″ to 51.5″.

It’s hard to knit an anatomically accurate salmon—please forgive any deviation from reality!

If you’d like something simpler, please take a look at the Cordova Cap pattern, which uses the same motifs and colors in a simple cap.
