Autumn is in the air. The sun is bright but the air is suddenly cool, in fact, chilly in the mornings. I made this long vest just for those chilly mornings.
It is lightweight, knit in sock yarn. Just warm enough to take the chill off, but not bulky like my winter sweaters. The vest is dressed up just a little with a beautiful curve along the bottom front edge and a large shawl collar that you can fold up around your neck
I have plans to wear it now as my go to for over a t-shirt. But, as the days continue to get cooler, I think it will be great under my all-weather coat for another layer of warmth. Just perfect to chase the chill away.
The details you need to know:
Sizes 32 (34, 38, 42, 46) Intended positive ease of 1 – 3″. Model shown with 2″ positive ease

The instructions for neck edge decreases are unclear, and I have become uneasy by reading project reports on Chill Chaser on Ravelry. Specifically, does the neck decrease 1 stitch only twice, and at 2″ interval?
You will complete the decrease a total of three times. The first one is just after the completion of the armhole decrease. Then the next two more are at 2 inch intervals.
