This vest is knit from the bottom up in Woolstok Tweed. Featuring a deep v-neck with ribbing at the neck and armhole, this piece has very little finishing.
Woolstok Tweed is made from Peruvian Highland Wool, just like traditional Woolstok, but with the added Donegal nips to make a classic tweed.
Kit includes printed & pdf pattern as well as selected yarn. Sizes with similar skein counts have been combined for kit purposes only. Pattern includes 9 individual sizes. For Ball Winding services click here.
