The Hobbiton Vest is a classic vintage-style vest worked in seed stitch with a decorative mock buttonband. It is inspired by both the elegant 1940s, and the cozy velvet- and wool vests worn by the Hobbits in the Shire.
It is worked bottom up with one strand fingering weight and one strand Mohair Silk held together.
