Kaleidoscope Vest is an easy and fast to knit vest, perfect for layering. The vest is worked top-down, starting at the neckline with Garter Stitch, then working the armholes by binding off and casting on sts, then working the body in a lace pattern. I made 2 versions. The first version only uses 1 color, the second version alternates every 2 rows between 2 colors to get a shorter color repeat. What else is there to say, I just love Noro.
