This vest is the epitome of autumn cozy! Living in a cold weather climate always makes me feel like I must have something cozy but that can be layered as well. A vest is the answer to this need. I wanted something with color and texture and the two-color brioche is perfect. While it takes a few rows to get into the rhythm, once you have it down your knitting time will fly by! The yarn used gives the oversized collar amazing drape that would look great worn open and loose or buttoned up. I’ll be wearing this vest with my skinny jeans and boots over a basic long-sleeved t-shirt all season.
