Description from the pattern:
I was inspired to design this vest by the criss cross pattern of my neighbor’s fence.
We all know how hard it is to put our arms into those tight winter jackets when we wear bulky winter sweaters. Wear this vest layered over a shirt; your arms will be free and the vest will shield your back from those cold winter winds just like a protective fence. And if you need more incentive, this is a relatively quick knit with just two main pieces.
