This pattern is also known as “Simple Vest” in Men’s knits: 20 new classics.

From the Book:
A simple pullover knitted in natural slubby silk cotton yarn. The v-neck and armhole edges are worked in with the body to give a neat but raw edge, so there is no additional picking up of stitches or ends to sew in. The rib stitch pattern, together with the textural tweed yarn, adds a little detail to this great basic. This versatile pullover looks equally good in a neutral shade or seasonal colour.
