Oda’s Vest English


Oda’s vest is a cool oversized vest. Perfect over a shirt to spice up your everyday wardrobe or over a summer dress on a chilly summer evening.


Oda’s vest is worked top-down with shoulder increases. While the increases are made, the neckline is formed with German short rows. The neck, the lower rib at the body and the rib at the wrists are knitted with 4mm needles and the rest of the vest is knitted on 5mm needles. For the vest, the methods tubular cast on and bind off are used to ensure a nice finish along with increasing the functionality.

Make sure the tension is correct. Make sure to knit a swatch before you start. The gauge is stated after washing. While knitting the gauge be approximately 21-24 stitches.

There is a positive ease with approximately 15-20 cm around the bust. Therefore, measure your bust circumference to find the right size.

I recommend to try the vest along the way and adjust the length to make sure it fits perfectly.
