A play on the classic “puffy” worn in winter, this vest is light on bulk and heavy on elegance. Made in strips, the vest is worked twenty stitches at a time and joined as you go for a custom fi t. A Tunisian variant makes the fabric light and fluid, and the simple shape is flattering. A nifty border encases those pesky yarn ends.

FINISHED SIZE 36 (48, 60)“ circumference, to fit XS–S (M–L, XL–3X). Garment shown measures 36”, modeled with 2” ease.

YARN Universal Yarn Classic Shades (70% acrylic, 30% wool; 197 yd 180 m/3½ oz 100 g; ): #731 natural glow, 4 (6, 7) skeins.

HOOK Size G/6 (4 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

GAUGE 20 sts and 6 rows = 4” in puff patt. Gauge is not crucial for this project. Loose tension is helpful.
