Named for a Viking princess, this simple vest can be worn on its own or over a shirt. The deep V and shaping at the waist is flattering for all sizes, and the plaid pattern is both classic and right now! Wear it with a skirt and jacket to the office, or with denims at home. OR work it without the waist shaping for the man in your life!

Construction
The vest is worked in the round from the bottom up. The armholes and neck are steeked, with the neck starting before the armholes. The shoulders are finished with a three needle bind off and the neck and arm bands are then worked in the round. Steeks can be cut before or after working the bands: personally I pick up and knit the first round and then cut the steeks.
