The Moto Vest Pattern by Shelli Westcott is a versatile knit that can be worn over shirts for added warmth. This is a super quick knit in a chunky weight but the pattern can be made in any gauge or type of yarn by adjusting the cast on.
L & B used Ushya by Mirasol a 98% wool 2% polyamide yarn. This yarn is super soft, fluffy, and easy to work with. We decided to color block our vest adding even more interest to this already fun knit!!
You can also pair this vest with lightweight jackets or wear it under coats. The large collar can be flipped for a scarf-shawl-like look.
By purchasing Mirasol products you are supporting the local shepherds of Peru. Their heritage and culture of textile artistry is one of the richest in the world and without them tending to their animals we would not have this beautiful, luxurious yarn.
