Named after the Goddess of the Rivers of Devon is this vest with textures running into each other at the center. One half is in a twisted rib while the other is honeycomb, divided by a spine of rib. The vest ends in garter stitch bands topped with a soft I-cord bind off. Devona is knitted in the bouncy Sølje Pelsull from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
