The Nicoletta Vest in Tempo Yarn - Plus a FREE Pattern!

The Nicoletta Vest
Want to knit a wide scarf in the summertime?  That's crazy!  But what if the scarf was actually the start of a sharp summer cotton vest?  Now that's cool! 

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!

The Nicoletta Vest is part of the Filatura Di Crosa pattern booklet "Ciao Bella."  You can purchase the entire 22-page booklet or just the individual Nicoletta Vest pattern.  The pattern is sized Small (Medium, Large, XL, 2X, 3X), you will need 2 (3, 3, 4, 4, 4) balls of Tempo color A and 4 (5, 5, 5, 6, 6) balls of Tempo color B.

Looking for a faster project with the same great Tempo yarn?  The Cap-Sleeve Cropped Cardigan in Tempo is a quick summer knit that looks super on the beach or stunning out on the town.  You will need 4-6 balls of Tempo to complete the Cap-Sleeve Cropped Cardigan (X-Small - 4 balls; Small-Medium - 5 balls; Large-2X - 6 balls).  The sample is knit in the summery orange, red and black Northern Lights

Bonus:  The Cap-Sleeve Cropped Cardigan pattern is FREE when you purchase any quantity of Tempo yarn!  

Summer is a great time for breezy, cotton summer sweaters and vests - and you can't go wrong with either the Nicoletta Vest or the FREE Cap-Sleeve Cropped Cardigan patterns!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
