I designed this vest for my Dad, however it would look just as good on a woman as it does on a man!

It is knitted using Rowan Felted Tweed. It makes it a lightweight, yet surprisingly cosy wardrobe staple. Perfect for those days that are a little chilly and you need something warm but not too restricting. The sleeveless design makes it ideal for tidying up the garden in the autumn and winter months, or to pop on whilst you are busy around the house.

The main body uses Hedgerow, the chevron pattern, arm and neckbands introduce the Avocado and Clay colours. The large stockinette stitch section means this is a great project for knitters who wish to add a little colour into their work.

It knits up surprisingly quickly and could be a great autumn or winter project for those long evenings in front of the TV. It is knitted bottom up, in two pieces with the arm and neck edging added at the end.
