Mielie Vest

$4.00

Product Description

Short Description: Mielie Vest by The Yarniad. Mielie (South African maize) is simple, classic, and utterly wearable in a number of ways. This vest is knit in Stockinette Stitch from the top down, mostly in one piece, with waist shaping. A ribbed collar is added once the body is complete, and is folded and sewn down for a thicker, warmer, and more dramatic shape. Mielie can be worn all snapped up, barely fastened with the collar falling open, or all open for a more relaxed look – the use of snaps allows you to choose the best placement after trying the finished vest on. And no fall piece is complete with out pockets – knit them straight onto the body (or simply leave them off if your hands are warm enough already).
