This vest is a simple rectangular shape with armholes worked in a combination of stockinette stitch, garter stitch, and a one-row repeat lace pattern. This project is deliberately worked at a looser gauge than is typical for sportweight yarn to create a drapey effect and would be good for spring and fall. Using worsted-weight yarn at the same gauge would make a winter vest.
