Here’s a sweet vest to top off an outfit. It’s knit in a worsted weight yarn (feel free to substitute a great worsted weight cotton or other blend!) from the bottom up in one piece (just like the super popular Talia vest that I first published through Knitty.com.). That means the only seaming is at the shoulders.

The overlapping leaves lace panels add great interest to the front and give the bottom of the vest a subtly waved finish. Garter stitch button bands are knit in. Ribbed armhole bands and neckband are picked up and knit.

The deep u-shaped neckline is shaped to flatter and allows a pretty blouse or shirt to still show it’s stuff.

PLUS, only 2 skeins are needed for the smallest size!
