“I love playing with layered proportions in my wardrobe during Fall and Winter, and this easy-to-knit vest is a fun and versatile addition to that effort. Though it’s basic in its shape and function, fully-fashioned shaping details and innovative finishing techniques at armholes and neckline make this workhorse wardrobe staple special.”
– Jared Flood
Worked in a single piece from the bottom up, this design proves that exciting pieces don’t need to be difficult to knit. Designed as a unisex garment, three different body lengths are provided so you can create the fit and proportion that suits your tastes.
Self-finished armhole trims are worked using knitted welts and a polished corded selvedge for a tidy, professional finish – no armhole pick-ups required! Smartly-fitting armholes, neckline, and shoulders utilize fully-fashioned shaping for a high-end look that will invite detail-lovers to take a closer look at your handwork.
The round neckline is finished with a unique, welted trim and squishable folded neckband that gives a high-quality feel, with added durability. Pair various vest sizes with different body lengths to get garment proportions that work for your wardrobe and invite layering with your favorite tops and outerwear.
