Vest Tara is a versatile piece of clothing that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. I have knit these vests with a mix of cotton, merino and alpaca (Lana Grossa - Ecopuno print), which is more suitable for spring, summer and fall. If you would change the yarn to wool this vest will be for winter layering.

Vest Tara is knitted bottom up with and is easy to knit. It is knitted in the round till the armholes. Then divided in a front and back piece and knitted flat. You don’t have to increase or decrease stitches and you only have to know knit and purl stitches. There is no front or back to this vest. Both sides are identical.
After knitting you have to sew the shoulder seams.

This vest is described in 5 sizes (S, M, L, XL and XXL) and is available in English and Dutch.
