SPUN PROJECT OF THE WEEK
Designed by Hailey Smedley of Ozetta Knitwear and knit by
Annri in Kelbourne Woolens Lucky Tweed
A perfect layering piece, this oversized vest has a simple top-down construction and a double-layer collar to keep you cozy. The gorgeous rich tones of Kelbourne Woolens Lucky Tweed (100% merino) make a wardrobe staple into something special.
Annri notes, "I think this will be a wardrobe workhorse, over shirts, tees, and dresses, with jeans and PJs too. The knitting is simple and smart; the shoulder shaping via short rows gives a nice curve to the cap sleeve, and hefty ribbing punctuates the edges. This is my first Lucky Tweed project, and I enjoyed every little, colorful nep! And, WOW, I did not anticipate how soft it would become once wet blocked!"
