Description
The classic knit/purl gets refined and simplified into a striking mirrored motif that adds visual flow to a cropped, boxy shape. A drapey alpaca, merino, and silk blend in a bulky weight creates a plush, soft fabric.

I tried to make this Vest several times. I know it is my fault because I don't know how to read charts well. If I had know that it was charted only I would not have purchased it. Ripped it out several times trying to get it correct and just could not do it. If you understand charts then it is probably great, if you don't, stay away.
