The body of this vest is knit flat in one piece from the bottom of the back panel up, over the shoulders, and down the front panels. Stitches for the armholes are then picked up from the body, which are knit in the round. The sides of the vest are then seamed from the bottom hem to the underarm. Stitches for the neckband are then picked up from the body, which is knit flat. Stitches for the pockets are then picked up from the body, which are also knit flat from the bottom-up.

Care: Hand wash or machine wash cold, tumble dry. Please test any washing/drying method on a small swatch to ensure you like the end result. As our cotton is chunky, un-mercerized, and minimally processed to preserve the fiber’s natural softness and elasticity, it is more prone to shedding. Washing and drying should help alleviate this. For further information and tips, please consult our Fiber Care Guide

Yarn made in Italy, kit assembled in the USA.

Shown in Tahitian Pearl and Apricot.
