The Ultimate Spring Vest


Lori Versaci's new design: 
Summer Fog is the perfect Spring/Summer/Fall "throw on" vest.  Knit in 3 pieces and sewn for firm structure.  One pocket shown, but you can always do two. We knit ours in Queensland Rustic Tweed- as shown only took 3 hanks. 
 Rustic Tweed is a DK weight blend of Alpaca & Merino with Donegal Tweed color neps. Shown here are just a few of the many colors we have in stock.

Some of the other DK weight yarns that would work well in Summer Fog are: Tenzing, Song, Acadia, DK Merino Superwash, and Tosh Sport.
