The charm of this vest is in details: the finishing of edges and the multi coloured yarn with touch of mohair. Vest is knitted with hand dyed alpaca yarn held together with silk mohair, a combination that makes the vest soft and light!

Aamu sarastaa vest has some positive ease which makes it flattering to wear. The vest is worked bottom up. Neck edge and armholes are finished with i-cord.

Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge.
