Product description

Columns of welts in varied scale distinguish this oversize, drop-shoulder vest. Bonnie Sennott, who contributed the Sawmill River Hat to Wool People 8, drew inspiration from automotive grilles to create a gansey-style overall texture. 

Grille is intended for 6-10” of ease, but the weightless fabric of Loft and strong vertical lines will keep it from looking bulky. The front and back pieces are knit flat and seamed; a ribbed neckband is picked up and worked seamlessly to double height, then folded and sewn down inside the garment for a perfect finish.

The ideal lightweight layer to throw on over casual or work outfits, this vest is sure to become a wardrobe staple. Try it in a warm neutral like Barn Owl, a dark, complex shade like Artifact, or a bold modern hue like Hayloft—this versatile design will sing in any color.
