A vest is the perfect canvas for these stitch patterns that evoke the West. The Links and Northern Star stitch patterns provide just enough detail to keep knitting interesting, broken by simple reverse stockinette. The convertible collar and wide front bands leave room for personalizing your one-of-a-kind vest. Perfect for walking the dog or adding an extra layer, the merino yarn makes it the ultimate comfort piece.
