Pattern Gauge: 8 stitches = 3” 7.5 cm and 17 rows = 4” 10 cm in Stockinette Stitch on Size 11 8 mm needles

A cozy vest is the perfect layering piece when a bulky jacket or sweater is just too much. This one features an intricate looking textured stitch that resembles a complicated cable panel, but is done entirely without cable needles. Shaping throughout is done within the reverse stockinette stitch background panels.

The vest is also knit from the bottom up in one piece for minimal seaming. Pockets are knit in, as are the slight cap sleeves. The hood is picked up separately. Ribbed button bands and 2 gorgeous toggle buttons finish the elegantly casual look.
