Blooming Vest Pattern

price: $7.00

Introducing the Blooming Vest pattern! Get ready for a stylish V-neck vest that is the perfect layering piece to wear by itself in warmer weather or over any outfit in the cold. This pretty vest pattern is easy to knit and the perfect project for beginner knitters ready to tackle their first sweater too. Featuring simple yet classic construction, the vest is worked in the round from the bottom up and then the front and back are worked flat separately before rejoining at the shoulders. A contrast color ribbing is worked around the neck and armhole openings, followed by optional floral embroidery around the neckline. Detailed instructions on how to embroider those blooming flowers are given too.
