Garter Knit Vest Pattern

A garter stitch vest knitted in 3 rectangular pieces. No purling… No neck shaping… No armhole shaping… Only the garter stitch that makes your experience easy, fast, and rewarding.  Knitted out of cotton, this vest can be a great summer top during the warm season. Made out of wool or acrylic yarn, it comes handy in the cold season.
