A maddy laine knitting pattern for a classic men’s vest featuring a simple cable pattern to knit in a DK weight yarn, making it light enough to be comfortable but ready to add a layer of warmth for the coming fall and winter season.

The front neck is V-shaped, the front pockets are deep enough for a manly hand, and a twisted rib on all the edges adds a sleek finishing touch.
