This vest is a very relaxed fit in the front. The length of the front may vary depending on your body type and the yarn you choose to knit with. In addition, the front will be approx 6”~7”longer than the back. For a closer fit, you can use a shawl pin to put the two front together.

I recommend knitting this vest with yarn with a gauge of 18~20sts/4”, not 16~18”/4”. Please check your gauge carefully and adjust needle size to obtain correct gauge.

Very versatile and fun to knit!

Tosh vintage - If you are planning to knit with Tosh vintage, please add 10% more yardage for you size. The character of this yarn (bouncy) seems to require more yardage.
