Introducing Rockhound Vest, a sleeveless v-neck sweater vest with richly textured professorial vibes. Knit with your favorite toothy wool for structured yet delicate twisted cables in a vintage-inspired motif.
Rockhound Vest is eye-catching when worn alone, but also a sleek, warm, and unfussy layering piece over everything from t-shirts & turtlenecks to dresses and button-ups.
The engaging seamless construction and sleeveless style makes for a captivating knit from start to finish.
Knit seamlessly from the top down. Casting on each back shoulder separately onto waste yarn using provisional cast-on, the back shoulders are joined along the back of the shaped neckline and worked flat down to the armholes incorporating armscye shaping for ease in all the right places.
The stitches for the front v-neck panels are then picked up along the back shoulders, and worked flat down to the armholes. Once all three pieces (back, front left and front right) are worked to the armholes, they are joined into one piece and worked in the round down to the hem.
Easily customize the depth of your v-neck and size of your armholes when working the twisted 1x1 ribbing to complete the neckline & armholes of your vest.
