Eden’s Adam is a simple, classic styled vest or singlet with a modern construction. Throw in a few subtle style details and a couple of unique techniques, and you have a fun knit that you’ll want to explore again and again. This pattern provides both the classic garment and the palette of temptation to help you on your creative way.

The pattern’s versatility and style allows it to be knit in a variety of different weight yarn from 4ply/fingering through to worsted/10ply.

This is a seamless garment, knit circularly from the top down.

What sets this pattern apart is the particular attention paid to the finishing details; the depth of the armholes, good chest coverage, the neatened joins, details for working jogless garter stitch. Such subtleties combine to give the finished garment a neater, finished look.

Finished chest measurement:
15-21: 15/38 (16/40.5, 17/43, 18/45.5) 19/48, 20/51, 21/53.5
22-28: 22/56 (23/58.5, 24/61, 25/63.5)26/66, 27/68.5, 28/71

This garment is designed to be slim fitting with no ease. Modifications for the vest version will result in approximately 1 inch/2.5cms of positive ease.
