Neck Tab Button Vest

Lion Brand« Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

12 sc + 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Neck Tab Button Vest Reviewed by JoAnn Andrews on 2012-08-07 *****
This pattern is super easy. It was my first vest. I made one using Homespun (and one in Tweed)and it was very warm and bulky. I added four inches to the bottom to add length.
