Gauge
This pattern requires different gauges and needle size depending on the size being knitted. This information is included in the pattern.

Pattern Notes
This unisex, sleeveless pullover or vest, is knitted in the round from the bottom up, commencing with a single 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 colour chart for the colour work motifs.

The photographs shown in the photographs is the second size worn with 5cm (2in) of positive ease on the male model and with 10cm (4in) of positive ease on the female model. It is suggested you choose a size with approximately 5-10cm (2-4in) of positive ease at the chest.
