We all love a casual style for that comfortable feeling as we start a busy day, and some days more than others. And oh how I do love the casual work days!
Casual Wednesday is a perfect layering piece to your blue jeans and a favorite casual jersey shirt. The vest gives a casual vibe, yet is a stylish touch that will set you apart. It is graceful, feminine, elegant, and very-very cozy.
The vest is worked top down and is seamless. This design requires you to be familiar with short row shaping and cables, thus making the design suitable for an intermediate knitter.
