I designed this vest for my daughter. Mornings can be quite cold in our yarn shop and this is just the thing to take the chill off! It is a quick knit with a simple stitch pattern that shows well in multicolor or solid yarns.

This simple vest is consructed from the front bottom up over the shoulder and down the back. The pockets are added afterwards.
