This vest complements our TNNA Cardi worn by staff during the National Needlearts Association trade show in 2016. With TNNA coming up in just a week, we thought there was no better way to celebrate than by releasing the TNNA vest. Worked in Bamboo Pop, this gansey-inspired vest is perfect for warmer weather. The textured, knit-purl stitch patterns really pop – what else would you expect from Bamboo Pop?
