Beautiful Projects – Vests

February 23, 2016 0 Comments

We seem to have a pretty permanent vest obsession. It’s the perfect kind of garment for layering as the weather warms up a bit, and I love to wear them when I’m working in my garden and want to keep my arms relatively free! With spring around the corner I had a look at some of favourites.

The night after I came across this vest on Ravelry I actually had a dream about it. This gorgeous cropped vest using the Little Birds motif was knit by HometownKnits, who also blogs here.

We love this Angostura knit by dogpatchknitter, such a great colour!

There are so many beautiful versions of Angostura in the world and I really love the colour of this one – so elegant and a really great fit. This one belongs to christinagriffith.

AlixPearson was one of the first to post pictures of a finished Cruden, and its awesome! Such a great, dramatic palette.

A vest in a neutral colour is such a useful thing in a wardrobe! This version of Angostura by kristenkelly should be getting lots of wear…

I’m sure it’s obvious I found it hard to pick just a couple of Angostura vests! I love this tweedy version by Erendis.
