Betty is a small vest with two variants.
First, the summery hippie version, which is a bit wider below (the body is knitted in Brioche) and where you can play with cords and tassels.
On the other hand, the classic shape of the body is knitted in Half Fisherman’s.
Both vests fit very well due to the V-back construction and don’t slip off the shoulder.
