The Aspen Woodland Vest is the perfect layer to add to your outfit in all seasons. It will bring a touch of cozy colour in the spring, drive the air-conditioning chill away on a summer day, add a finishing touch to a fall outfit, and provide an extra layer of warmth in the winter! This vest can be worn casually as a relaxed fit over a Tee, or wear it in a closer fitting size over a button-up shirt for a bit of professorial panache.
Worked in two pieces in an over textured pattern then seamed, this V-neck vest is finished with ribbing picked up and worked in the round at the armholes and collar.
