Please note the errata in this pattern before beginning your project! There is an issue with the rib at CO (should be 2x2 instead of 1x1) and also the neckline collar finishing instructions. Details in the errata link!

A pop of bright colors accents this otherwise muted chevron vest. If stranded colorwork makes you nervous, simplify this design by working stripes instead of chevrons. Shown in size 8.

Pattern Notes

  • Vest is worked bottom up.
  • You will need to be able to read your work and make adjustments to the colorwork stitch pattern once shaping for the armholes begins.
