The Harpswell Vest is a perfect layering piece for spring and fall. This classically shaped vest is worked from the bottom up in the round, using an easy-to-memorize textured stitch pattern – interesting for you to knit, but not too flashy for him to wear. As shown, the vest has approximately 3 inches of ease.

The pattern includes both written and charted stitch pattern instructions, and a detailed schematic.

Knit, purl, increasing and decreasing (both k2tog and ssk), knitting in the round and back and forth, three needle bind off. This pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner.

Vest requires approximately 675 (790, 925, 1050, 1150, 1250, 1350) yards/617 (722, 845, 960, 1050, 1145, 1235) meters.
