The Ella Vest

The Ella Vest

Ella has entered the chat...

Just a little something for those intermediate knitters, strong beginners or knitting pro's looking of a fun project. The Ella Vest is here! You can chose from the digital knitting pattern if you already have a yarn stash full to the brim, or you can opt for the complete DIY knit kit in a range of 18 colours, with everything you need included... just add scissors!

Sweater vests are hugely underrated in my opinion, they are the perfect layering piece for an autumn wardrobe. A little bit chilly... sweater vest, want to jazz up a plain long sleeve top... sweater vest, need an extra layer for your fave dress... sweater vest! You get the idea here. I think it's safe to say I'm entering my sweater vest era!

You can also mix up the colour options, I went for two plain styles in purple and sunflower, then I went all out and used up some of my scrap yarn by doing a rainbow Ella vest and I love it! So yes this is the perfect stash busting project too.

What techniques does she involve?

- Casting on / off

- Knit and Purl stitch
