Take a closer look!
V-neck sweater vests make a perfect first dip into sweater knitting. They’re simple, practical, and look great on just about everyone. This one features a classic silhouette, a just-deep-enough neckline, and twisted 1x1 ribbed trim throughout. It's shown in a close fit on Beth, but will look great no matter which fit you choose.
Sample shown in Blue Sky Alpacas Extra, in color "Fedora".

This sample was knit in Blue Sky Alpacas Extra, a super-luxe blend of alpaca and merino. It has exquisite stitch definition, a lovely heft, and comes in generously-sized hanks.
I used the color "Fedora", at a gauge of approximately 4.5 stitches per inch. At this gauge, to make a standard-size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)’’ / 76 (81.5, 86.5, 91.5, 96.5, 101.5, 106.5, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152.5) cm sweater, you'll need approximately 3 (3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6) hanks of Extra.
