A perfectly cozy casual zip front vest...with a hood - what more could you want? A totally versatile top in 9, yes NINE, sizes from 32.5" - 64.5" bust! Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL)! Sample shown in size SMALL which is SECOND SIZE with approx 2" ease. A simple 9 stitch braided cable works its way from rib to neckline, but it's only on the fronts, the back is plain sailing in Stockinette St. Gentle waist shaping allows styling with a belt or without. Garter st sleeves are added as you go, as is the front border for easier construction. The hood is picked up around the neckline and worked to the top. You HAVE to see the way the hood is finished - NO SEWING involved except for finishing ends - ingenious!
