When crossing centuries or just running errands, versatility is key. This unusual wrap can be worn several ways: belted or open, with a shorter collar and a longer vest (as shown) or turned upside down for an oversized collar. This vest is simple and fast to knit and is the perfect last-minute project, worked in Super Bulky yarn. It is a dramatic statement piece.

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Magnum by Cascade Yarns (100% Wool; 250g/123yds): 3 Skeins. Shown in Mocha Heather. This 100% Wool yarn is warm, long wearing, and beautiful! PRE-ORDER available in any color. Please allow at least 5 business days for pre-order shipping to your location.
ALTERNATE YARN: Bulky by Blue Sky Fibers (50% Alpaca / 50% Wool; 100g/45yd): 8 Skeins. This LUXE yarn has an amazingly soft hand and charming natural or pastel colors.
