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. The edge is crocheted with a single strand slip stitch for a smooth finish. This is a V-neck classic that is sure to become a year-round standard.

I can't remember when I couldn't knit, crochet or sew. I am inspired by yarn I find, trends I see on the street, window shopping in Manhattan and suggestions from fellow knitters and crocheters. My goal is to create stylish patterns that are easy to wear, and to find the simplest way to construct them.
