Pattern Details





Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stocking stitch
  • paired decreases
  • mattress stitch
  • applied I-cord

Pattern Description:

Garments are three dimensional structures. Seams don't have to be straight or at the sides so let's use triangle units! There are an infinite number of ways to build this vest; follow the suggested route or invent your own. Although this vest cannot be constructed from a single strip of triangles, the number of separate strips is kept to a minimum. The vest is finished with applied I-cord edging.
Adventurous intermediate knitting but you must enjoy Mattress stitch seaming!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The size of the vest is adjusted by scaling up or down the size of the triangles.


  • Allow 7 x 50g Noro Kureyon for a 40" vest
  • 50g of contrast for the bands

You Will Also Need:

  • 5 mm needles

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Noro Kureyon
