Pattern Description:

Penny is a seamless vest that is knit in one piece from side to side. The pattern is written for 5 different yarn weights: fingering, sport, dk/light worsted, worsted/aran, and bulky, so you can use whatever yarn you like (yardage required for each yarn weight is listed below). Simple, quick and versatile, Penny is a relaxing knit that will make a perfect light layering piece.

Sizes: S (M, L, XL)

Crossback Measurement: approx. 13 (14.5, 16.5, 18)" / 33 (37, 42, 46) cm

(Crossback measurement is more important that bust circumference in this pattern. Measure your crossback width, which is shoulder blade to shoulder blade.) Size recommendations are listed below based on 'standard' crossback measurement for different bust sizes but I recommend measuring your own as these standards can vary across different individuals:

Based on 'Standard' Crossback Measurements:

- Bust Sizes 30-34: typically would knit the size small
- Bust Sizes 35-39: typically would knit the size medium
- Bust Sizes 40-44: typically would knit the size large
- Bust Sizes 45-52: typically would knit the size x-large

Yardage Required:

Fingering: 866 (1088, 1354, 1626) yds
Sport: 758 (952, 1184, 1424) yds
DK/Light Worsted: 582 (732, 910, 1094) yds
Worsted/Aran: 542 (680, 846, 1018) yds
Bulky: 434 (544, 678, 814) yds

Gauge:

- Fingering: approx. 6 sts = 1" in St st on US 4 32" circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge
- Sport: approx. 5.25 sts = 1" in St st on US 6 32" circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge
- DK/Light Worsted: approx. 4.25 sts = 1" in St st on US 7 32" circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge
- Worsted/Aran: approx. 3.75 sts = 1" in St st on US 9 32" circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge
- Bulky: approx. 3 sts = 1" in St st on US 10.5 32" circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge

Note: Recommended needle sizes listed above are approx. 1-2 sizes larger than you typically would knit with for each particular yarn weight in order to create a drapey fabric. But, you can choose to use whatever needle size you like to create the kind of fabric you prefer - just make sure to follow the instructions based on your gauge.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Crossback Measurement: approx. 13 (14.5, 16.5, 18)"
