how many ways to wear a linen vest?

Everyone loves a reversible garment, am I right?
The other day I walked into the Knit Cafe and Iwona was wearing our Polka Dot Vest sample in a very creative way.  She looked very stylish of course! It seemed like the the vest was meant to be worn that way but then we turned it all around and upside down and confirmed the inarguable truth that this little item is a reversible one.

Here it is with the longer side at the neck making a generous collar and a high back.

Here it is with the short side up it hangs longer and more open at the front.

You can tie it in a knot, or use a shawl pin to close it, or really mix things up and wrap it around your neck.  No one will ever know it was a vest earlier in the day!

The Polka Dot Vest is made with Euroflax by Louet.  Here it is shown in Natural, which is the colour we knit our vest in.  The pattern comes in two sizes but because it is a very stretchy garment it fits size 2-20.  For either size it takes two skeins of whichever pretty colour of Eurofax you fancy. You can see more colours of Euroflax and some more suggestions for linen knit projects  HERE.
