The warrior vest is unique due to its attached cowl, the combo of different yarns and the brioche, garter stitch, and stockinette stitch patterns combined in one garment. Since it uses different weight yarns and colors, it's also a great stash buster. I came up with this design because I wanted something warm that left my arms free, and I also wanted to be able to wear it in the fall, winter, and spring.The bulky Freia Fibers yarn in the ombre color is eye catching and cozy, and the cowl is knit with a worsted weight yarn and has many stitches so the cowl can wrap twice or be worn long. This is a beautiful statement piece that can go over a dress or with a tank top and jeans.
