Designed by Jennifer Miller for the 2018 Puget Sound LYS Tour

Layer this versatile vest over your favorite outfit for instant polish. We knit our summer version in Zooey,  a linen/cotton blend yarn with light-weight, elegant drape; however, we are already dreaming of a woolen version to add sophisticated structure to our fall wardrobes. Choose your favorite solid color or add a little kick by knitting a comple­mentary block of color into the neckband.
