Free Knitting Pattern

 

 

Chevron Vest Pattern

 

This 3-color tank is knitted in two pieces from the top down.

Yarn-over increases make decorative lace lines at the center;

in combination with stitch decreases, they make a nice chevron stitch version.

With cotton yarn, you can knit a lovely summer top.

Wool yarn can be used to make a cold season vest.
