His Vest Kit


      Churchmouse has designed the timeless men’s vest you’ve been asking for! The slightly high V-neck has a modern look, the ribbed armbands extend just to the shoulder’s edge, and the pattern is clearly written with tutorials for sloped bind-offs and picking up stitches . Equally right for business or casual, His Vest fits perfectly over a dress shirt or a T-shirt. Rowan Felted Tweed DK (50% Merino, 25% rayon, 25% alpaca) is a soft fiber blend with a sophisticated color palette that enhances this classic vest.

      His Vest is available in 6 sizes. If you prefer ‘slim’ or ‘trim’ cut shirts, choose 1–3" of ease at the chest. If you prefer ‘regular’, ‘classic’ or ‘traditional’ shirts, choose 4–6" of ease at the chest. If your waist is somewhat larger than your chest, make sure you choose a size that gives your waist at least 1" of ease. The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment so to achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is the preferred number of inches larger than your chest measurement.

      • Size 1: 40” finished chest circumference
      • Size 2: 43” finished chest circumference
      • Size 3: 46” finished chest circumference
      • Size 4: 49” finished chest circumference
      • Size 5: 52” finished chest circumference
      • Size 6: 55” finished chest circumference
      Each kit includes sufficient yarn for the size specified in the color of your choice, along with the pattern. We will purchase a copy of His Vest for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field in your cart!

      Please note that this kit does not include needles. You will need US6 straight or 24” or longer circular needles and US4 16-24” circular needles (or size needed to achieve gauge). If you don't already have the appropriate needles at home, you can shop Spun's selection of straight needles here and circular needles here.

      If you'd like to make your kit a gift (for yourself or someone else), or if you just wish to keep your new project tidy and organized, add the Spun Rope Handle Bag with Pin to your order and we will package your purchase accordingly!
