East Coast Swing


East Coast Swing is a swingy vest knit all in one piece from the hem to the shoulders and featuring A-line shaping. The only finishing required utilizes the three needle bind-off technique so no seaming is needed. A modern yet simple silhouette, this vest is an easy and relaxing knit suitable for knitters of all skill levels and is a great little layering piece.
