Trym Vest

This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This classic vest has a split hem, hanging slightly longer in the back than at the front, and elegant lines of broken rib that continue up the side of the body. Knitted seamlessly from the bottom up, this pattern comes with lots of options for making it your own, including a V-neck or scoop neck version. There are three versions of the pattern, so you may choose a 3-ply, 4-ply or DK weight yarn.

Please note that this vest is designed for wearing with a shirt or blouse underneath. If you wish to wear it as a top you may like to decrease the depth of the armholes, by working fewer rows before beginning the neck shaping.
