Free what can be better? So a sweet pattern and well written. I have worked up several. I added length to each one to hide area's that I dislike on myself. Such a modern item that everyone can you use in their closet. These whip up very quickly that you can add many different colors to the different season. Can't go wrong with this pattern.

the pattern certainly is free when I opened it from the allfreeknitting.com link there it was, the photo and the directions were right there waiting with the intro from allfreeknitting.com - what could be simpler? Worn over a shirt and skirt or pants or over a sweater and jeans it would be stunning - so far I have not encountered a flaw in the pattern -

What a nice, airy vest to layer over a tank and shorts. I think if you made it longer it would work as an easy beach cover up, you could even add a little belt. It would be beautiful in white or black yarn and a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

the pattern is FREE, like everyone says. Just click on the green Click here for knitting pattern, it will take you to the Red Heart site and right under the picture is the download button! easy to find and FREE

Yes it is a ripoff. I had to buy this patter. It has mistakes in it and it is NOT an easy pattern. I do not want to ever see it again.

Pattern is free and is on red heart site. Once u get to their site, just click on download pattern. I believe it is red. Red heart will help u if u have problems making any oh their projects. My favorite yarn and site. Gook luck and God bless!

that is so true. there is a mistake in the pattern stitch and could not find any corrections on the site.

there really is a pattern there, click on the green line above

Click above on "click here for knitting pattern". It takes you to the red heart site where there is an instruction under the picture that says "download printable instructions". In my experience it is a very rare occasion when there is no pattern connected to the link- one just needs to know how to follow the cues.

Again, there isno pattern here. This is a rip off, saying free patterns exist when there are no patterns.

You have to click on the green underlined "click here for knitting pattern" link. I did and it took me to the red heart website and the pattern.
