This chunky and cropped knit vest can be worked up in a weekend and is relatively easy for an intermediate level knitter or a beginner with some knowledge of knitting basics! It is made up of two back and front pieces, some seaming, v-neck detail and armhole/neckline bands.
Pattern includes ONE SIZE and measures bust all around 86cm, length 44cm. Due to the style of the vest it fits well sizes S,M and L. However, if you would like to make another size or use a different weight of yarn, instructions and measurements are included.
This is an easy level knitting pattern, and the techniques you will need to know are knit, purl, 1x1 rib, knit 2 together, cast on and cast off.
To knit this vest you will need needle size 12mm(US17), with 10mm(US15) circular needles (around 80cm long) for neck and arm bands. 80m + 200g super chunky yarn for the neckline, armhole and waist bands and 120m + 200g super chunky yarn for the body. The sample is knit with Wool and the Gang's Crazy Sexy Wool and I used about 2 and a half balls for the full vest. If you would like to use different needles or yarn, there is a possibility the vest will turn out different!
