This Garter Stitch Vest pattern is a perfect way to get familiar with sweater knitting without all of the time and commitment. The pattern uses a bulky weight yarn held doubled, resulting in a gauge that knits up quickly and makes you feel like a knitting super star! Additionally, most of the vest is knit in garter stitch, making this ideal for beginning knitters looking to expand their skill set. The pieces are knit separately and then seamed together - allowing you to concentrate on one part at a time. If you are an experienced knitter, this will be a speedy knit that you will come back to again and again.
