This piece just renders us kind of silly. We imagine that if the fairies in Arthur Rackham illustrations wore vests, they would be this design-- quick, light, darting, beautiful. The back is plain st st, with a dipped neck; the front, sleek and dramatic as you see. The sides of the piece are basically straight, with a bit of 2 x 2 ribbing outlining the armholes. It's hard to think of something that would look better worn with your stretchy top or blouse worn loose. From Nashua Handknits' Nashua Magazine 1.
