The pattern for this vest is from an article in Threads Magazine and is designed by Pat Moriarity of Plymouth, Wisconsin. It is called the Istanbul vest but my shawl came from a wonderful trip in Spain. These long shawls are everywhere but if you are like me (and Pat) they are hard to wear. The pattern was simple to make and I have had loads of compliments and "where did you find it" comments. Find the pattern in the Oct/Nov 2007 Threads Magazine. At the end of the article is another kind of shawl pattern! Thanks to Pat for being so generous, my only comment is that I wish I looked as good at the model in the article!!
