I had it in my head that I would knit a vest - something that could be worn over button front shirts - and now that my carpal tunnel isn't playing nice, I thought, I can just get some sweater knit or ponte and SEW one!

Sooo does anyone have patterns. I am apparently the world's most horrible Google'er and can't find anything. I thought about just using a tank pattern but then figured the armholes might be too high up to comfortable go over another shirt.

Anyway, suggestions? advice? Thanks :)

Have you seen Simplicity 2283? It has a couple of cute tops and an vest. It is a loose open vest. I know there are others, but this is one I have wanted to make.

I flashed on Kwik Sew- they have various knit vests styles with several pullovers. I googled Kwik Sew knit vests, so have a look amongst the patterns that popped up. Here's a drape front Jalie vest. Let us know if any of these fit what you have in mind.

If you want a waterfall type vest, The Sewing Workshop eshrug is not a shrug. I am 5'2" and the pattern not lengthened goes to my waist. It is so simple to make. The body is all one piece, joined at the shoulder. You have the option of lengthening it and of and using a sleeve in what ever length you want.
There are several reviews for it here on PR. I made mine a vest and so didn't use the sleeve pattern and had it finished in a couple hours from fabric selection to finish.

The link to the reviews are here:

I have way too many yards to count, and I will never use them up, but I will die trying!

Thanks all!!

Yeah, not really a cardigan or waterfall type vest but more of a "sleeveless sweater" so to speak.

I'm still learning to look past KwikSew's pics. Goodness. The 1315 pattern (the red view) is what I have in mind. Thanks Wendy!!

It would be fun to see these drawings redone by a more contemporary artist. I say it's time Kwik Sew.

It would be fun to see them updated, I agree.

No suggestions... just laughing over the "learn to look past KS pics" - isn't that the truth?? I physically recoil when I see them!

I saw a review today for KS3115 (the awesome yoga pant pattern), which I have. And forgot there were tops in the pattern



View B works! I can lower the V or make it a scoop if I want, add a hem band and boom!

Yay! :)

And here, RustyBobbins wears it as such
