Head into fall and winter with this classic argyle vest. With both a v-neck and round neck option, it looks great worn over shirt and collar or long sleeved t-shirt and under a jacket. The design is gender neutral with sizes from XS to 6X. The argyle motifs and cross-hatching can be worked using the intarsia technique or added later with duplicate stitch. This versatile addition to your wardrobe is easy to make and easy to wear.
