This long vest is a great piece to throw on over jeans or dress pants for extra warmth or extra style. It's worked in one piece to the armholes and the shoulders are joined using 3-Needle Bind-Off - no seams to sew! If you prefer more room in the hips, consider working a portion of the body using a needle one or two sizes larger than required to meet gauge - specific suggestions are included in the instructions.

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
