“In 6 sizes.”

The vest you’ve been asking for. And asking for! The slightly high V-neck has a modern look, the ribbed arm bands extend just to the shoulder’s edge, and the easily-adapted length is designed for hands-in-pockets ease. Equally right for business or casual, it fits perfectly over a dress shirt of T-shirt. Whether your shirts are ‘trim’ cut or ‘traditional’, you’ll find a perfectly comfortable size.

Tips for choosing the right fit and photo tutorials for both picking up stitches and bind off techniques will give you confidence as you knit a timeless garment with just the right amount of tailoring.
