Anne

This is a shaped vest worked in seeded rib check on worsted weight wool. Its colors intertwine as pocket linings segue into upper bodice stripes that finish at neckline and armhole trims. The neckline sits just low enough to allow a peek of tee shirt from underneath. It's a quick knit; pieces are knit flat, bottom-up, with seaming. Circular knitting on trims.
