The Whitby Vest is a relaxed fitting unisex vest perfect for knitting with a more earthy or rustic yarn like Fibre Company’s Cumbria. This vest is worked in the round from the bottom up in stockinette stitch with a double rib hem. The top half of the vest is worked in a double moss stitch. The collar and armbands are created by working an I-cord bind off.
