I have such a weakness for simple, graphic patterns with high contrast. Especially if the pattern is also small enough and logical enough to be easily memorized, so I don’t have to glance at the chart all the tume.

I really like how the elements came together in this design. The garter stitch yoke on the vest help keep the design simple and clean – and simple to knit, as well. The little “purl lice” along the edges ties everything together, in my opinion.

Varyler is worked in the same pattern as the Badutspringer hat.
