Leaf Pie is a vest worked with DARUMA GENMOU.
I wanted to create something loose-fitting, so this design includes lots of ease and deep armholes. Larger projects can become heavy, but worked in GENMOU, Leaf Pie is lightweight and warm.
I recommend wearing it with a collared shirt or with a turtleneck on really cold days.
I included some shaping to make the back a little longer than the front. If you'd like to lengthen your vest (instructions are included in the pattern!), be sure to grab 1 additional ball of Genmou.
