Cozy Vest – 88

$6.50$7.70

The double thick, cuddly fabric of this unisex vest comes from a simple slipstitch rib pattern offered by Barbara Walker in A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Two design elements – slits at the hip and optional side gussets – offer three shaping alternatives for various body types. Knitters may knit the vest straight up and down, create side gussets to accommodate a larger chest measurement, or leave panels open to waistline to allow for larger hip size.
