Knit sideways in one piece, this vest is as easy to wear as it is to make. Style it open, wrapped, buttoned, knotted, hip-length, or turned upside-down for a waist-length vest with a big collar! You get many looks from one garment.

Ripple is a Medium weight (4) thick and thin cotton tape yarn. It creates interesting texture with the simplest stitches. Knit on large needles, the effect is lacy and flowing--the perfect warm-weather vest.

Zooey is a Light weight (3) cotton linen blend that is slightly thick and thin. Once it is washed, it has a lovely soft drape.

Pure Linen is just that, yet remarkably soft. It is a Light weight (3) yarn. When knit at this gauge it makes a soft open mesh.

Shibui Kavo and Twig held together yield a Medium weight (4) with wonderful body and drape. The subtle sheen of the Kavo plays well with the matte surface of Twig.
