Penny is a seamless vest that is knit in one piece from side to side. The pattern is written for 5 different yarn weights: fingering, sport, dk/light worsted, worsted/aran, and bulky, so you can use whatever yarn you like (yardage required for each yarn weight is listed below). Simple, quick and versatile, Penny is a relaxing knit that will make a perfect light layering piece.

Sample photographed is size small and uses 2 skeins of Knit One Crochet Too’s Soie et Lin (a silk/linen blend) in the Cumin colorway. To acheive a similar drape, I recommend using a yarn with fiber content such as linen, cotton, silk, bamboo, cashmere, alpaca, etc.

Sizes: S (M, L, XL)
Crossback Measurement: Approx 13 (14.5, 16, 17.5)”/33 (37, 41, 44) cm
(Crossback measurement is more important that bust circumference in this pattern. Measure across your back width, from shoulder blade to shoulder blade. Or pick your size based on standard measurements below).

Based on ‘Standard’ Crossback Measurements:
• Size S: fit bust sizes 30-36”/ 76-91 cm
