Pattern Description from A Fine Fleece: “For some time, I’ve wanted to play with the concept of the trinity stitch and a three-strand braid. I couldn’t resist placing the braid in a panel of three across the back of the vest. I employed more organic shaping, allowing the tighter gauge of the braids to form subtle shaping at the lower edge. As a handspinner able to customize any fiber I can imagine, I took the concept of three even further into the fiber design. The gray handspun yarn is a careful mix of three different animal fibers: wool, alpaca, and mohair, each 33% of the total weight, in three varying shades of gray.”
