The Design

"Classroom chic."

With simple styling that lends itself to the classroom, workplace, or weekend, this vest is so classic, so quintessential, it could become your uniform. The jumper length has a certain school-girl chic. The abridged, hip-length version is a flattering layer without the bulk of a sweater. Either way, this pattern is a nice little primer of techniques you’ll use again and again.

We’ve knit this version of the Library Vest in Rowan Moordale, a DK-weight blend of alpaca fiber and fine micron Bluefaced Leicester wool. Fine and curly, Bluefaced Leicesters have one of the softest fleeces of British sheep! With the silky touch of alpaca, Moordale knits into a robust, springy fabric that drapes beautifully.
