Show the world some unique flair with this stylish and fun to knit vest. Worked from the bottom up on differently-sized needles, the panels of textural seed stitch provide a subtle canvas for the eye-catching yoke, which uses Red Barn Yarn’s Loopy Mohair to create a fascinating and oh-so-soft yoke. Finish the vest with closures that suit your personal style and enjoy the admiring looks you’re sure to receive!
