The Sideliner Vest, by designer Sarah Lucas, is a fun and flattering color-blocked design. This pattern combines different types of ribbing and multi-directional knitting to create a cinched in waistline with the narrower vertical rib and a roomy bust area with the wider rib in horizontal striping. Every area is individually worked to break up the gradient color into contrasting sections; the color transitions will play out differently for every knitter, making each vest unique and personalized. An I-cord trim adds an extra pop of color to the edges of the vest and is a softening detail to the modern zippered closure. This is a great little layering piece for fall, and a quick and fun knit.

Requires: 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5 balls Ombré Sport Wool
