Construct a statuesque silhouette with this long, loose fitting vest. Make it even more striking by choosing a handpainted yarn with a varied colour combination.

All angles and rectangles, this vest is worked in two panels which are joined on a right angle at the back. This gives this piece its unique cocoon-like shape.

The Tilting Blocks stitch pattern introduces movement in the distribution of colours while the long, tapered Front Panels emphasize the long line.

The sample pictured is knit with Fleece Artist Merino 2/6, 100% superwash merino, (350 m./383 yds. per 125 g. skein), colour “Red Fox”, size Medium/Large.
