Westy Vesty


( / )

Please select all options.

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Select four fun colors and knit this side to side vest in garter stitch. Increases and decreases with I-cord edges form angular points to the front flaps. Stripes and blocks of color add interest to the easy garter stitches. Two armholes are formed by a simple bind off and cast on like a giant buttonhole. Wear the vest upside down for a cropped version with a shawl collar or wrap it around your neck like a scarf.
