Pattern Description:

This pattern has been a best seller on Ravelry and Etsy, and now its available to you.

I made it in my "hippy dippy" phase-- a purely remiscient phase for me, haha.

The beauty of this piece is the versatility of it: wear over a long sleeved tee as a vest in cooler weather, over a cami or tank in the summer with jeans or a skirt.

The one pictured is made with very fuzzy, soft acrylic yarn, but you can make it with a lighter weight yarn.

The pattern is easy to follow and takes you step by step; for sizes XS-3X. Quickly makes up with Trebles and ch st pattern.
