Astra Vest Bundles – Ambah O’Brien, Harrisville & Spincycle


Original and curated bundles in Spincycle Yarns’ Dream State and Harrisville Designs’ Nightshades & Daylights.

All of a sudden I have the urge to wear vests and found my wardrobe lacking. Astra Vest is my solution, a fun slip stitch vest that is perfect for layering over your favourite outfit. Fun colour play is encouraged with the contrasting colour – use yarn with a long repeat colour change as I have in mine, or use up all those colourful scraps you have stashed away; alternately keep it simple with a solid contrasting colour. Use the leftovers to knit yourself a coordinating Astra Hat, Cowl or Mitts – Ambah O’Brien
