Aspen Woodland Vest Kit

Size: XS (3 skeins)
Option: Lavender and Lace

Designed by Jessie McKitrick

Each KIT includes the Pattern and the amount of Yarn required.


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.


Size XS – Finished garment size at chest is 86 cm / 34" and requires 3 skeins of yarn.

While we make every effort to represent colour accurately, they may vary slightly when viewed on different monitors.

Dyed-to-Order:  Please note that with dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 2 - 3 weeksfor us to dye and ship your yarn. In addition, while we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
