Chevron Vest

Chevron Vest in Love of Knitting Spring 2016

Chevron Vest by Molly Conroy in Love of Knitting, Spring 2016

Difficulty Level Intermediate

This vest gets its dramatic colors the easy way—self-striping yarn. Make it in bright shades for a boho or retro look, heightened by a generous drapey front. If you haven’t tried a big project before, this seamless and sleeveless garment is the perfect choice because it’s a rectangle with slits for the armholes. Leap into lace with the simple chevron stitch, which creates a sawtooth edge along the front openings.
