INSPIRED BY vintage styles, designer Pat Menchini has created this smart tank top/pullover vest for men. It features a two-tone stripe pattern worked in slip stitches for an interesting look. Pat’s design is knitted in Illustrious DK, a fantastic yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners. This is a blend of Falkland wool, which provides bounce and great stitch definition, and British alpaca, which gives the fabric a muted sheen.
