To fit bust sizes 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54)”. This sweater looks best with 0-2” of positive ease. If your size is not available, please choose the next size up. Vest fronts do not meet to close, as this piece is intended to be worn loose and open.

US8 (5mm) 40” circular (for working back and forth) and one set of US8 (5mm) dpns OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE

Blunt needle for weaving in ends. Set of locking stitch markers.

18 sts and 24 rows = 4” in stockinet stitch (st st) on US8 (5mm) or size needed to obtain gauge

This open-front vest is a simple piece, with cozy pockets, that’s great for layering. It uses an unusual construction, by starting at the center back with a provisional cast on, then joined and knit in one piece, top-down from the underarms.
