Make this bohemian looking vest in just a couple of hours! Perfect if you bought a chunky handspun yarn. You need about 100-150 grams of chunky yarn, and a pair of 14mm knitting needles (above it says 15mm because I could not choose 14mm). The vest is knitted in simple stockinette stitch, and the pattern contains directions for a smooth edge (where you slip the first stitch of every row). If you are just a beginner, just ignore these instructions.
The vest is made in three different sections, and you sew the parts together later on (which happens really quick because you only have a few stitches to sew together).
This pattern could easily fit kids or toddlers when downsizing the needles and the thickness of the yarn.
This vest is not made to be closed. If you would like to be able to close it, add a few more stitches to each front panel.

Let me know if you run into any problems. Enjoy!
