Cowan is a light, open-front vest perfect for sprucing up your summer wardrobe. A beautiful openwork pattern is splashed across the lower hem, reminiscent of wildflowers growing in a meadow. Wear this garment with the fronts hanging free, or pin one or both sides up with your favorite shawl pin.

This vest is crocheted in one piece from the bottom up. Work is separated at the armholes, and then rejoined for the upper portion of the vest.
