Deva




Deva (a playful water sprite) is part of my “Touch of Magic" ebook, a collection of quirky modern sweaters and vests.

Deva vest is completely seamless and is worked from the top down. I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, “contiguous set-in sleeves”, that allows shoulder shaping without the use of a single short row.

The design features Fountain lace panels and a knitted on belt, though the vest can be made without it as well.
