Modernist Vest Knitting Pattern
This basic pattern is an easy, semi-cropped V-neck construction, made by combining two identical rectangles worked from bottom front to bottom back and joined together on the sides and back. Optionally, 2 buttons, and 2 chain buttonhole loops may help to tie the vest.
The colorwork combines vertical stockinette stripes, intarsia, and stranded knitting. The pattern is bordered by twisted 1x1 ribbing and includes just a little embroidery for accent. Adequate for an intermediate level of skill, it is a fast and fun project to make.
