Mari Lynn Patrick makes simple knitting interesting with directional panels and varied ribbings in this vest. A curving shawl collar, floating fronts, and a springy, structured linen yarn create wrap-the-body fit that looks good on everyone.

Finished Size 34 1⁄2 (36 1⁄2, 38 1⁄2, 41, 43, 45 1⁄2, 47 1⁄2)" bust circumference. Vest shown measures 36 1⁄2", modeled with positive ease. Note: Because of the way the fronts hang when buttoned as shown, the garment actually has more positive ease than just the difference between bust measurement and garment measurement.
