Easy to knit, the design of this vest is based on traditional Gansey motifs. Knitted from the bottom up in one piece to the armholes, the vest is ribbed at the bottom, then worked in stockinette stitch to just under the armhole bind-off. The top portion of the vest features a series of knit/purl motifs, and v-neck shaping. The armholes and neck edge are finished with ribbing. This is a great vest for men and women.
