A new pattern release!

Dolores Park Vest

Well, technically, this is not "new" since I put it on Ravelry last Monday. Anyhow, I'm really happy with this design. I've been personally wanting to wear a shawl collar tunic vest for about 2 years, but every time I went shopping for it, I couldn't find something I liked. I either didn't like the material, color, or the shape.

Finally, I sat down to write this pattern few months ago, and completed it last month.

The vest is all-over St st. and is finished with smocking stitch shawl collar. The shoulders on this vest was shaped so that they cover the upperarms, creating that cozy, comfortable look.

I wore this to Vogue Knitting Live in LA last month and received a lot of compliments while I was in the marketplace.
