Pattern Debut: Penny
My very first adult garment is hot off the presses! Introducing, the Penny Vest:
Penny is part of the brand new Knit Picks Gloss collection, 6 new designs featuring Knit Picks' Gloss yarn, a lovely soft blend of merino and silk.
Penny, a sleeveless vest that can be worn alone or layered during cooler months, features lace columns and an inset lace panel at the neckline.
Just a hint of cabling decorates the arms:
Shown here worn loosely as a sleeveless top, Penny works equally well worn with less ease and layered over a white button-down for a preppy look. True story: the original inspiration for this vest was Penny's Cheesecake Factory uniform on the Big Bang Theory, which features a tightly fitting vest with a deep V-neckline!
However you decide to wear it, this piece will add a subtle cozy touch and a hint of lacy elegance to any outfit.
You can pick up the entire Gloss DK collection right now for just $8.99, buy the Gloss DK e-book for $9.99, or purchase Penny as a stand alone pattern for $4.99!
I also invite you to preview the collection and check out the Penny pattern page over on Ravelry, because hearts = love!
