This ever-popular vest is knit on #7 needles and is another useful and versatile pattern for the seasoned beginner, like its counterpart in sport weight (pattern #741S).
Knit in raw wool, it is a rugged, warm work vest – good for cool weather, great with jeans. The vest can work for you in a multitude of worsted weight yarns and fibers, each lending the vest its own flavor. Mohair and silk blends create a dressier, more feminine vest. Cotton makes it a transitional vest for spring and fall, or warm climes. Change the look from day to night, work to play, man to woman by choosing from a variety of tweeds, boucles and designer yarns.
