My First Pattern of 2022 – the Clove Vest

I’m very happy to introduce my first new pattern for 2022, the Clove Vest. Clove has been almost ready to share with you since last Autumn, but after a brief break to launch #StitchAdvent and to start a new job, it’s finally launch day!

Clove is a vest or tank top designed to be made in medium-weight knits, and looks great worn over a shirt, blouse, turtleneck or tee.

The main feature of Clove is a wide neckband ending in a v-neck. It also features a tall hem band which is sewn in two parts with a split at the side.

The pattern is designed to be quick to make, without closures, and with a band finish at the neckline and hem. The armholes are finished with a facing.

The PDF pattern includes two size ranges: B -Cup (in sizes 04-22) and D-Cup (in sizes 20-36). The D-Cup size range includes a bust dart, and has a closer fit through the chest.

The pattern includes two views. View A is a longer length, ending level with the hips (pictured here in lilac). View B is cropped, ending above the hips, perfect for pairing with high waisted trousers or skirts (pictured here in a pink floral fabric).

Clove is available now, with 15% off for launch week until 01st March 2022 (no code necessary; discount automatically applied). I’ve been getting lots of wear from my samples and I made myself a really fun version over the weekend, which I’m looking forward to sharing with you later this week.

  1. I bought this pattern last week and sewed it up today. I LOVE this vest! It was so easy to make and it looks great on.

    I would love to make this in a woven, is there any directions for doing that?

    Thank you for the pattern!

    1. Hi Karen, thank you! So glad you enjoyed making Clove. I have tested the pattern in different weights of knit fabric, but not in a woven. You might want to size up – although not necessarily needed – and the deep neckline means it wouldn’t need any fastenings added. The neckband may be a little bit trickier to align/attach around the neckline without the ease allowed by the stretch of a knit fabric – difficult to say without testing – but there is only minimal easing required by the pattern so I suspect it wouldn’t be too tricky.
