Anne

Warm and cozy, just what I had in mind – REintroducing Anne, a sweater vest with deep pockets, and stripes –  this time worked top down, and in the round!  This is a shapely vest worked in Seeded Rib Check stitch pattern on worsted weight wool.  The neckline sits just low enough to allow a peek of tee shirt from underneath. It’s a quick knit you’ll surely enjoy.
