This vest was designed to take advantage of the many colours available from Shelridge Yarns. Two strands of yarn are held together, one colour is switched out at a time to create the colour transitions.

The fit is very forgiving and will flatter many body shapes. The classic vest back gives the garment structure, while the front is constructed as a simple straight piece of knitting with angled edges creating points at the front. The colour changes create a strong, slimming vertical line on the front of the body. The front edges fold back into a shawl collar. The simple textured stitch pattern lays flat and creates a gentle transition at each colour change, subtly blending the shades.

It’s an updated version of The Prudence Crowley Vest with a different stitch pattern. The pattern uses simple reverse stocking stitch borders on the armholes and bottom edges to allow for easy finishing with multiple yarn ends
