FAMILY FAIR ISLE VESTS
FAMILY FAIR ISLE VESTS 

Knit Simple Magazine Holiday 2013 #1, #2, and #3

Design by Yoko Hatta

A bright triptych of hooded vests—sized for men, women and kids—boasts a simple colorwork pattern across the chest. Big-gauge yarn and a seamless construction (the body is worked in one piece to the underarm, and the hood extends from stitches held at the neck)make these full-scale vests deceptively quick to knit.
