Shifting fields of brioche stitch and a garter stitch variation add visual interest and knitting fun to this loose vest. This is the perfect textured knit to slip over a shirt or top in all seasons.

The photography sample combines two close shades of Atlas, for a tonal look in which the ridges and contours share star billing. We can’t wait to try it in higher-contrast colors, too.

Choose your desired amount of ease (looseness or tightness of fit on your body), then add it to your chest measurement, and choose that finished measurement as your size. Don’t forget to swatch, and block your swatch!
