Easy Knitted Sweater Vest for Spring

Easy Knitted Sweater VestThis pattern is from Knit Tricks by Rebecca Wat. It is the second knitted sweater vest pattern from the book that I’ve made. You can see the first vest I knitted here.

I altered the instructions a bit and did something different with the neckline. I did not like the droopiness of the original neckline, so I gathered it with a cord of similar color and added wooden beads to the end of the cord. I like this finished look. Also, this makes the vest easy to get on and off, and I can adjust how taut I want to cinch the top.

I used 4 skeins of Naturally Caron Joy! for the knitted sweater vest. The color is Aquatica (0007). I really like this color blue. This yarn is soft and light, and it blocked so nicely. I used #8 circular needles (28 in.). The vest is made of two rectangles (alternating several rows of garter stitch with a few rows of stockinette) stitched at the sides to create holes for arms and neck.sweater vestknitted vest
