This open vest/waistcoat is knit from the bottom up as one piece to the armholes, then the back and both fronts are knit separately before seaming at the shoulders. The ribbed blue colorway offers a contrasting stripe that gives the vest a visual weight at the bottom hemline. The garment is the perfect layer over winter outfits due to its flexible use in style.

Knit this ladies waistcoat by Heather Dixon. Available as a free pattern download, it uses Rowan Fur in two shades and its simplicity would make it suitable for the knitter with a little experience.
