Pattern Needed for Simple Ladies Waistcoat
Does anyone know of a simple free pattern for a ladies waistcoat/vest (not the pullover kind, but the kind that looks like a sleeveless jacket.....if you know what I mean....:wink:)

The lady in question is in her 80's, needs a bust size of 42-44" and as this is North Scotland I'd like to do it in a warm wool mix yarn - probably aran weight, but I'm open to suggestions.

Any links & ideas are gratefully received as always,

Perhaps something like these?
(just shorten the length)

All use an aran weight yarn.

Anyhoo..... thanks for these links, I'm going to knit the lionbrand long vest I think, and shorten it for a smart look for my older gal. Will hold onto the other patterns for a project when I have more time. thanks very much!

You are most welcome. I'm sure there are many others out there that would work for you but these are just first I ran across. I am glad that you will be able to possibly use one of them. happy knitting.
