I’m always charmed by the simple Norwegian “Lice” Pattern that adorns this vest – it’s both classic and sweet. This garment is worked in the round from bottom to top and, in the spirit of tradition, utilizes steeks (cutting) to open up the armholes and neck. Huxley knits up quickly and makes a great layering piece to add warmth and interest to your Fall wardrobe.
