Eramosa Vest Knitting Pattern (PDF) by Phibersmith Designs
Less fussy than a shawl, less structured than a normal vest, this piece is greater than the sum of its parts. The back is a gorgeous statement of cabled branches and lacy leaves while the shawl border wraps you in a cascade of double moss stitch. With a customizable pattern that caters to every shape, and a lustrous mohair yarn that adds the perfect insulating layer, the wind is at your back… and you can’t even feel it.
