Pattern Description:

This stylish vest knits up easily in a one-piece construction with minimal sewing. Using two strands of sport weight yarn, the body is worked in a seed stitch for shape and texture. The 3-button closure and a K1, P1 rib help define the waist while the ever-so-slightly capped shoulder shaping and deep armholes give the vest balance and proportion.
