Knitted from the top down, this traditional v-neck vest features a saddle shoulder and short-row shoulder shaping. Shoulder stitches are picked up from the saddle and the body is knitted in one piece below the armhole, so the only finishing is the ribbed neckline and armhole edges.
A versatile design- great for men and women!
Our sample is knitted in “Mid-Charcoal” worsted weight yarn.
