Pattern Description:

This buttoned cardigan vest is designed to knit up easily and quickly. If you hate sewing and finishing, you'll love this "when you're done, you're done" pattern.

The knitting is worked entirely in one piece, with bands and buttonholes knit as-you-go. Once the knitting is complete, only the shoulders need to be joined and buttons attached.

Design features are a bold textured chevron pattern and yoke shaping using the natural draw-in of a ribbed stitch.

Shown in Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky wool/mohair.


3.5 stitches/inch


  • 500(575) yards bulky yarn
