From pattern description: The one question to ask in designing sweaters for work is: ‘Will it be comfortable to wear for an 8-, 10-, or even a 12-hour workday?’ Here is one that will.

This unisex vest is ideal for layering under a jacket. It’s lightweight, non-restricting, and adds just the perfect warmth for chilly, winter mornings. The textured, all-over pattern appears more complicated than its actual 2 x 2 ribbing and simple rope cables.

The classic look and timeless styling is sure to become a versatile wardrobe basic - one that will make the transition to “after work” with ease and comfort.

Note: The pattern was originally modeled in the Skacel Collection Avanti which is the same yarn as the Zitron Avanti.
