Pattern Description from Interweave Knits: “Living in coastal Maine, Katy Ryan has learned the value of dressing in layers. She’s designed this classic V-neck vest to add color to gray days. The soft yarn keeps her warm in a drafty house, and the strong colors in the patterned bands challenge the dreariness of cloudy skies. To make the vest simple and fairly quick to knit, Katy has placed the bands of Fair Isle motifs on the lower body where they are not interrupted by the armhole or neck shaping.”
