The Design

“Classic, woolly comfort.”

This sweater vest is a straightforward, handsome wardrobe essential! The slightly high V-neck has a modern look, the ribbed armbands extend to just the shoulder’s edge, and the easily adapted length is designed for hands-in-pockets ease. Equally right for business or casual, it fits perfectly over a dress shirt or relaxed tee.

We knit this version of His Vest using The Fibre Co.’s Lore. This DK-weight yarn is woollen-spun in West Yorkshire, a region rich in textile history, from 100% lambswool from the Romney sheep. Bouncy and lofty, it’s a great choice for everything from classic sweaters to cozy colorwork!

KNITTER'S NOTES
Garment is knit in pieces and seamed using mattress stitch. Neck and arm bands are picked up and knit in the round.

When designing this vest, we really wanted the center V to be, well, centered! Take a peek at the close up picture of the front V-neck and you'll see a single stitch wide column of knit stitches directly in the center. At this point in our pattern, something really neat happens - we think you'll love it as much as we do!

Test knitters appreciated our finishing instructions and tutorial support for binding off and picking up stitches - we hope the teaching sections included in this pattern will become a skills library of sorts for use on future garments.
