This lightweight and airy crochet vest is designed with the gorgeous Lion Brand Unique Yarn in Jewel.
The bright changing tones give this simple design a big visual impact. This back of the Unique Shell Vest
is constructed in one piece from top to bottom. The two front panels are then crocheted on in two
sections and joined as you go. Once all three panels are crocheted, the sides are stitched together.
