Variable - Easy Project
The luxurious Variable vest will become a staple in your wardrobe. The flow of this vest when knitted in the exquisite yarns it was created in, is just phenomenal. It can be worn many ways, even as a scarf by using one of the armholes to feed the extra fabric through.
Some back shaping, otherwise the knitting is straight forward. Simple garter and stockinette stitches. So this piece is doable even for a beginner knitter.
Sizes: written instructions with photos for sizes small, medium, large/ x-large
