Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “This designer uses a two-ply variegated alpaca yarn in a man’s ribbed, pocketed vest. Because each ply of the yarn is dyed separately, the colors distribute evenly, with none of the blotchiness of some other variegated yarns. The soft, drapy hand of the alpaca gives this handsome vest a comfortable fit.”
