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.

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!
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.
