Burton is a very quick and easy cowl-neck vest mostly worked flat, from the top down. The pattern starts by working the shoulders to the underarms, then the front and back are joined together and the body worked in one piece.
The vest features a basic seed stitch pattern, ribbed edgings, short rows to shape the cowl-neck and horizontal set-in pockets.

The garment is intended to be worn with positive ease at the chest for a comfy fit.
