Nothing simpler to knit or crochet than a large rectangle with two slits for armholes et voilà you have a sleeveless wrap vest.
The only things to consider are how long you want the vest, how big a rolled collar you want and how deep the armholes will be.
Length can be determined from the bottom of the armhole to where you want the vest to stop.
The deeper the armhole, the more the vest will drop.
Do you like to wrap with a large collar (I do) or do you prefer the neck edge away from the face.
A sleeveless wrap vest is great to throw on over another sweater, a light jacket making it a great accessory you'll want in different weights of yarn.
The holiday season has pretty much creeped up on us but you still have some time to make one of these as a gift for yourself or someone special in the family.
Think about texture and yarns with sparkle. Plain stocking stitch for bulkier yarns or simple relief stitches for lighter weights.
