3 short tops quick and easy to knit with this 1970s vintage knitting pattern. One is a vest top with cable pattern, one is backless with halterneck, and one a lacy openwork vest top. All 3 are knitted in cotton yarns - other suggested yarns are given in the pattern.

These are good patterns for beginners as they are so quick to knit up. You could start with the backless top which is in easy garter and rib stitch; the lacy top is in river stitch which is mainly garter stitch; the vest top uses cable stitch which is a little more difficult but a great project to learn on. Instructions are for sizes 8, 10 and 12.
