2007 Basic Cardigan Vest for Men

Soucy: "A simple vest for men, made in one piece to the armholes, with 2x2 ribbed edges. Great for the office to the golf course! Uses worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 18 sts to 4 inches in sizes small through xx-large." We are absolute suckers for men wearing these; they look so authoritative, but cuddly too. Glee fans will want to rock them for the Will Schuesters in their lives. This design looks great in any yarn (though the Tussock's tweedy bits have the wonderful property of not 'throwing' mostly to the purl side, as so many do, so that's a superb choice of yarn).
