After a hard day walking the woods and felling lumber, the woodcutter is in need of a little rest and relaxation!

He heads home and dresses for a meal in the village with some buddies.
Over top a shirt, he wears a special vest…..It is classic and understated (like the fella himself), but with a wee hint of the arborial work environment he interacts with during daylight hoursre your

After Hours Woodcutter is a clean cut vest, constructed from the hem up, written in 15 sizes and for 3 different yarn weights (fingering, dk, and worsted weight).
The pattern is knit in the round, where the rustic garter stitch hem transitions into reverse stocking stitch side panels, which feature an inset leaf motif. The chest of the vest is finished with a simple garter stitch square neckline. For sizes 50cm and less, buttons on the back of both shoulders allow for easy dressing over a disproportionately large baby head.
