We are delighted that The Vest has made a fashion comeback. Quick to knit, (no sleeves to attach!) and easy to fit (no sleeves to measure!) vests also make great gifts. This week, Kim Guzman brings us the Richmond Vest, a wonderful example of how the vest can add just the right tailored yet handmade touch to your work or weekend wardrobe. Kim chose a rich shade of Country for Richmond, and the yarn’s merino wool blend and cabled construction make her textured stitches pop so beautifully.
Bust 34 (38, 42, 46 ½)” with trim
Length 20 ¾ (21 ½, 22 ½, 23)” without neckband
Note from designer: This is designed to be worn with a close-fitting top. If you prefer to wear a looser-fitting top under it, you will want to increase the armhole height by about one or two inches, but remember to decrease in the body.
Note from Designer: This pattern is no longer available on the Caron website. I have been given written permission to post the PDFs of my free Caron patterns on Ravelry.
