A super snug sweater vest with a gorgeous double roll neck and striking rib design. Perfect for mid season dressing, you can choose to knit a longer roll neck for extra cosy comfort, or keep it low with a crew neck for warmer days.

The design is finished with a side split and we’ve styled it with a longer back than front – but you also have the choice of no split / same length all round. It’s so versatile, you can make it to suit your wardrobe and your style.

The sweatervest is really generous in sizing. Size small will go up to a size 12 very comfortably. Chloe (size 6/8) wears both a small & medium in pictures. Helen has worn a size medium at a size 16, and has plenty of room. So size down for a more fitted style, but you won’t need to size up if you’re inbetween sizes.

The vest is knit in the round (with back and forth on the front and bottom when splitting for arms/bottom rib) so no sewing up required!

Size when made

All sizes are approximate based on tension and the stretch of the yarn. Also please note that the armholes are very wide so that will add to sizing. The sweatervest is very generous in size.

Small – UK 6-10 / Approx 45cm wide

Medium – UK 12-16 / Approx 60cm wide

Large – UK 18-22 / Approx 65cm wide

X Large – UK 24-28 / Approx 75cm wide

You decide how long you’d like your sweater vest to be, and whether you’d like the back the same or longer than the front.
