This is a cardi/vest that is knitted from the neck down. The back of the neck has short rows for shaping. It features a Leaf Inset across the yoke. It is a cute, simple knitted cardi/vest that will look great paired with a turtleneck and a pair of corduroy pants.

I used a heavy worsted weight to make mine. The gauge on this pattern is perfect for bulky or heavy worsted weight yarn. It is a perfect knit for one of my favorite yarn….Lambs Pride Worsted.
