The bulky weight version of the circle vest knits up quickly on size 11 needles for a warm fall or winter vest/shrug. This vest is easy to knit and takes advantage of the stretchiness of ribbing to provide a flattering fit. Knit stitches on each side of the ribbing make a built in edge for the armhole.

There are two versions: with ruffles and without, depending on how fitted you wish the vest to be. The sample was knit using 3 skeins Cascade 220 Heathers color 9447, knit very loosely then fulled (felted) to end up at a bulky weight (3 st/in) gauge. 32” chest with 16” armholes.

Note:
The yardage measurements are generous so you can knit the ruffle version or add additional rows if you are more busty. If you wish to knit the plain version you will need about 20%-30% less yarn.

If you wish to create a fulled (felted) version you will need to knit all measurements approx. 30% larger and use larger needles- do a swatch to see how much your yarn shrinks.
