This quick and easy vest will add punch to your wardrobe. The front is a faux wrap construction, so it doesn't use as much yarn and you don't have the bulk of 2 layers of fabric. The twisted stitches on the lower hem and waistband suggest movement and give added interest. Slight waist shaping is provided simply by the different gauge of the twisted stitch pattern.
