There’s no “right-side up” with the Loop Vest -- it can be worn as shown, with the sides forming a V at the back neck, or “upside-down” so the horizontal strip forms a sort of collar at the back neck.

This is also a great pattern for those who love to modify their knits -- once you know how the Loop Vest is constructed, you can try playing around with different yarns, gauges, and stitch patterns to make the vest your own. It’s also easy to adjust the size of the vest to fit -- just wrap and pin your strip of knitting as per the diagram, and try it on as you go.

The Loop Vest is now available as an individual pattern download from the Interweave online store.
