Hiking Vest

To the mountains, the park, or just to hang around your own backyard, we designed this sturdy zip-front vest to keep up with you regardless of where your adventure leads you.
Folded single crochet ribbing creates the collar and borders the armhole and hemline for a comfortable fit that moves with you and can be blocked to provide a more customized fit.
Add a zipper closure to the hidden internal pocket to keep your treasures (or car keys) from getting lost along the trail (or somewhere between aisles 5 and 9 at the grocery store).
