The Keris Vest is a pretty Fairisle sleeveless sweater, knit with Marie Wallin's British Breeds yarn. Keris is such a lovely design from Marie Wallin's book, Cumbria. The motifs on Keris are inspired by carpet and ornamental folk designs of Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
Construction: This sleeveless sweater is knit flat due to the differing repeating pattern sections. It can be knitted in the round with the introduction of steek stitches where the side seams and armholes would be.

Selecting the correct amount of ease is very personal. Please choose a size based on your own preferences. As always, it is important to manage gauge to ensure you will have enough yarn. If you are worried you can purchase an extra skein of the main color!
Corinne has a lovely interview in The Woolly Thistle ShopCast with Marie Wallin where they discuss the Cumbria collection.
