Rocky's Winter Vest





This has to be the easiest garment I have ever knitted! It's from Briggs & Little's "Easy Family Knits" and was probably the most boring knit I ever did. But...............it will be perfect for the cold Maine winters. It is a utility vest made just for warmth. It took just one week and 4.5 skeins of Briggs "Anniversary Twist" worsted, knit on size 8 needles. It was supposed to be made in two pieces but I knit it on a circular needle - no seams, all in one piece, no ribbing to pick up for the armholes and neck. Did a three needle bind-off and had a total of 6 ends to weave in. What could be easier? This would be a great first sweater for a beginning knitter.

The down vest acts as wonderful accessory to nearly any outfit. It provides warmth, comfort and style. These vests can be purchased for person of any age, male or female, large or small. This such versatile piece of clothing that I think fashion police may just require that every person own one.
