Two yarns blend beautifully in Axis – Pebble provides structure and the sheen of Kavo highlights the lapel. With modern lines and a relaxed fit, this vest can be worn open or closed.

Notes

Twig and Pebble unite in this long vest with an offset front closure. The wider right front neckline features an angled lapel, created by working in Twig alone. Body is worked from the bottom up in one piece to armholes, then divided for fronts and back, and worked separately to shoulders.
Hold 1 strand of Twig and 1 strand of Pebble together except at lapel.
