Cozy Oversized Vest Knitting Pattern – Knitting

I don’t want to be the one to say it, but the fact remains that summer is almost over, at least if you’re reading the school calendar where I live. Yes, it will probably be warm in a lot of the Northern Hemisphere for a long time to come still, but it’s never too early to start thinking about knits for the fall and winter seasons. Or even better, stitching up things that you can use now and still wear when it’s colder outside.

I think the Oversized Vest with Asymmetrical Front from Cascade Yarns falls into that category. This roomy, boxy vest, designed by Deborah Newton, is worked in wool, so it might be a little warm to wear as a shirt in the height of summer, but it’s a good extra layer for cooler evenings (or buildings) and it will be the perfect extra layer when it’s a little cooler out.

It’s worked from the bottom up in one piece on a long circular knitting needle up to the armholes. it comes in six sizes up to a finished bust measurement of 61.5 inches, and is meant to be worn with 7 to 10 inches of positive ease.

The original used wool yarn, but I think you could use wool or cotton blends with good effect, too. The textured pattern used on the vest is pretty easy to memorize, but the pattern is rated for intermediate knitters.

This pattern is available for free from the Cascade Yarns website.

Need more vest patterns to get you through the transition into fall? I recently collected a few of my favorite vest knitting patterns. Or check out this cute, super simple and fast bulky vest knitting pattern that I made earlier this year. You’ll be happy you took an afternoon to stitch this one up when that first unexpected cold snap hits!
