Vienna Vest

6.50

The Vienna Vest was born out of a love of texture & versatility. This piece can be worn on its own or as a layering piece, & looks great fitted or with a bit of positive ease. It fades from DK/heavy sport weight to fingering weight to lace weight yarn, creating a lovely drape with plenty of options for customization.It gets its name from one of my favorite cities in the world, & is the perfect stylish piece to wear while traveling & exploring. But it's so cozy that you might just want to wear it around the house every day!
