Clove Vest


Clove is a knit vest top with two neckline options and two lengths.

Views A & B feature a wide neckband ending in a v-neck. Views C & D feature a crew neck, achieved with a facing.

Clove is designed for medium-weight knits and looks great worn over a shirt, blouse, turtleneck or tee.

Clove has a tall hem band which is sewn in two parts with a split at the side. The D-Cup size range includes a bust dart, and has a closer fit through the chest.

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

Views A & C are a longer length, ending level with the hips.

Views B & D are cropped, ending above the hips, perfect for pairing with high waisted trousers or skirts.
