Outdoor Vest by Uldklumper
This outdoor vest keeps the body extra warm, while the arms are free to move. The collar protects the neck from getting cold, and furthermore creates a nice and sporty look.
The vest is knitted from the top down, starting with the collar. The collar is made using (German) short rows, and the recipe contains both a version with and without an icord in the drawstring. After the collar is knitted, the shoulders and the neck is made, using short rows.
The vest can be used for both boys as well as girls.
