The Winnie Hooded Vest is worked in one piece using one simple seam to create the hood. Oh, and don’t forget the pockets!!! The Winnie has a simple, yet classy edge that finishes it off just right! This light and airy design is perfect for a trip to the beach or the pool! Add a button or toggle and use the oversized hood to pull down and wrap around your shoulders! It is also perfect for spring or fall over a cozy long sleeved shirt! The fashion possibilities are endless with The Winnie!
The Winnie was originally released as a limited time free pattern with the option to purchase at a discount! The Winnie will now be joining my other full priced patterns and will be replaced by The Madeline Sweater as my new free pattern! You can get The Winnie on Etsy and Ravelry!
