The Arundale Vest Pattern was designed this for my Dad, however it would look just as good on a woman as it does on a man!
It is knitted using Rowan Felted Tweed DK. It makes it a lightweight, yet surprisingly cosy wardrobe staple. Perfect for those days that are a little chilly and you need something warm but not too restricting. The sleeveless design makes it ideal for tidying up the garden in the autumn and winter months, or to pop on whilst you are busy around the house.
The main body of the Arundale Vest Pattern uses the Hedgerow colour, the chevron pattern, arm and neckbands introduce the Avocado and Clay colours. The large stockinette stitch section means this is a great project for knitters who wish to add a little colour into their work.
The Arundale Vest pattern knits up surprisingly quickly and could be a great autumn or winter project for those long evenings in front of the TV. It is knitted bottom up, in two pieces with the arm and neck edging added at the end.

Arundale Vest Pattern Gallery
As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear. It might need to be machine washable yarn, pick up extra for any minor repairs in case of thorns and other garden mishaps. Then knit with love in every stitch.
My Dad loves his garden but sometimes feels the cold on his back, especially on breezy days, hence the need for a warm vest. The Arundale Vest allows my Dad to move around, get things done and not get too warm.
