We just can't make too many vests. These are practical, versatile, fun and very easy knitting.
Using the chunky yarn and the strips of color makes this another fun pattern to work. It is a very warm vest, just ideal for outdoor events. Because there's no difficult neck shaping or collar attachments, this vest works up fast. The button band is knitted in as you go. Cross fronts, right over left for females and left over right for males. Choose your favorite school or team colors and have fun.
This listing is for the pattern of the pictured Vest. In the sample I used Lion Brand "Hometown USA" 100% acrylic machine washable super bulky yarn, which means a QUICK KNIT.

I have been knitting and crocheting for over 55 years, having learned at the age of 5. After retiring in 2011, I am able to pursue my dream of designing my own patterns and sharing them. Thank you for looking and join us at Knitting Paradise http://www.knittingparadise.com/ for lots of fun and information.
