It’s not quite a vest; it’s a short sleeved cardigan! The fit is meant to be oversized with the three panels forming short sleeves. I came up with the shape by just stacking rectangles on top of each other. The cardigan is made from three rectangles: one big, and two small.

I used Lion Brand’s Flikka yarn for this project! Flikka is somewhat finicky and a little splitty, so I’d recommend preparing yourself for that ahead of time or using another cotton or cotton blend yarn. Lion Brand’s Comfy Cotton appears to have a tighter coil so it may not split as easily and it’s a nice cotton/polyester blend.
