You will have fun playing with the different ways this versatile piece can be worn, from cowl to cape to the graceful angled tails. It can be worn upside down and backwards, and if the ends are woven in carefully, it can even be inside-out! Worsted weight yarn on large needles produces a light and lofty fabric, enhancing the pretty drape of the vest. Using just garter stitch, ribbing and simple increases, even the beginner will find this one a simple knit.

The red vest is the smallest size, knit in Lana Grossa Babykid. The green and brown vest is the third size, modeled with 1” of positive ease.
