|The Nicoletta Vest|
The Nicoletta Vest starts with a wide scarf, then stitches are picked up and knit down to create the back. To add to the fun, the scarf and the back are knit in different colors. The end result features a high-low hem, so the front is playful and flirtatious while the short back is a cool, breathable body.
The Nicoletta Vest is knit in Filatua di Crosa's Tempo, a cotton blend that combines a thick-thin yarn with a nubby tweed and multicolored print for a unique textured look with gradually shifting color. We have Tempo in twelve different colors. The Nicoletta Vest sample is knit with Mountain Meadow and Golden Sunrise, but the twelve slightly-rustic colors are all so interesting any two colors would look great together!
