A groovy, cosy vest that will quickly become your best friend!
We wanted to create a Vest that combined easy, quick knitting (on straight needles) and luxury yarns that give it a unique designer edge.
In the colour option photos, the two yarns at the top are knitted together for the top of the vest and the two yarns at the bottom of the photo are knitted together for the bottom of the vest.
Knitting double stranded creates the 'variegated' look and incorporates the lofty Alpaca with some Mohair and Silk - dreamy!
Your kit is carefully packaged and delivered to your door with everything you need to knit your project.
About the Pattern The Vest style is boxy and loose fitting with a longer armhole opening. It's designed so that the hem sits just below the waist but if you want to knit it a little longer there is enough yarn included. There are three sizes included in the pattern: S (Womens Aus/NZ 10) | SM (Womens Aus/NZ 12) | ML (Womens Aus/NZ 14-16).
