Looking for an easy sweater vest to learn with? The Winston Vest is worked from side to side in one large piece, using simple increase and decrease combinations. You’ll begin at the back side and work up, then move onto the front, then to the back, and finish with the other side! It’s super simple and super fun…always keeping you on your toes!
You’ll only need to know how to Ch, Sc, and Hdc to complete this sweater! Really! It’s incredibly simple!
