This slouchy vest is a fashion forward layering piece. It is inspired by the trendy area of Paris known as Le Marais. Features include modular inset panels between the front and back sections that create an unstructured flowing shape with a handkerchief hem. The small collar and front edgings are in stocking stitch that is slightly ruffled and deliberately allowed to curl. These design elements result in a chic modern look with textural interest. The piece is easy-to-wear with its flowing lines that camouflage the hip area. In a light yarn, it can be worn year-round.

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: I have sold designs to Interweave Knits, Knitpicks, Creative Knitting magazine, KNIT magazine (Yarn Forward), Yarn magazine, Knit Now magazine, Classic Elite Yarns, The Sanguine Gryphon, and Three Irish Girls Yarns.
