Knit a Cowl Neck Sweater Vest on your Addi Express Knitting Machine! This garment is custom fit, made from just a few flat panels.


This garment is made from flat panels, knit on the [easyazon_link identifier=”B004HS7T7S” locale=”US” tag=”yayforyarn-20″]Addi Express Knitting Machine[/easyazon_link].

I joined my panels with a lace join, but you can also seam them with mattress stitch.  Finish it with a knitted or crocheted edging, or simply bind off the live stitches with a crochet hook. You can make this sweater vest from whatever weight of yarn you like.

I crocheted my edging from a pattern in my favorite stitch dictionary:

How would you wear a sweater vest like this?  

Happy Yarning! 🙂

    I love this project so much. What a great idea!!! I would greatly appreciate it if you did more projects like this on the Addi! I’m making it now. Did you have a recommendation for how long it should be? Or perhaps how long we should make the top part beyond the tops of the shoulders? Thank you again!

      Hi Kristin. I would suggest deciding how long you want the body of the sweater vest to be for your length preferences, and then add the extra length needed for the cowl portion. I prefer the cowl part to be about 10″ to 12″ long. I hope this helps!
