The Petites Feuilles Vest is an easy, fun knit that is perfect for layering. With its adorable constrasting secret pocket (optional), it’s also great to use up leftover yarn and it lends itself to many color combinations. The shoulder buttoning ensures that the garment is easy to put on and off.

The pattern is both fully written and charted, to accommodate personal preference.
