Winkle Vest

A new, seamless, top-down classic, the gentle curves of this vest are created by varying the height of the shell stitches. Working down from the yoke, you can make this as long or cropped as you like. The pattern is easy, and in the end, you’ll have a great spring layering piece. Pattern includes instructions for plus size.
