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.
