In this design, the knitting is simple and the crochet a little more involved (but not difficult).

The vest is to be worn with some negative ease - the knitted garter stitch panels will stretch to follow your silhouette.

The yarn used in the sample is stunning - but this design will also work with other yarns. I recommend a yarn with some merino content, or perhaps some other “bouncy” component - this design needs elasticity!

My teenage daughter loves this one!
