Pattern Notes
This unisex, sleeveless pullover or vest, is knitted in the round from the bottom up, commencing with a simplified corrugated rib. Steeks are placed at the armholes and v-neck so that the garment can be knitted in the round throughout. The shoulder stitches are joined using a three needle bind off. There is a full length chart for each size in the pattern, along with a corresponding steek chart.

The photographs show two sizes, the first on the female model is the second size worn with zero ease and the version on the male model is the seventh size worn with 2.5cm (1in) of positive ease. It is suggested that you choose a size with approximately 0-6cm (0-2.25in) of ease at the chest.
