Introducing the Winter Tank

GestaWhile leafing through Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton's Hand Knitting Collection Book Number Two, the Gesta pattern caught my eye -- if you haven't realized it by now, nona loves reading knitting books, magazines, pattern books, etc.   Nona thinks this garment looks far too stylish to be called a "vest", nona thinks it should be be called a "winter tank", so be it.  I've actually seen the knitted winter tank featured in several fashion magazines and like how it is layered over a button down shirt.

Having just bought a pink and beige striped button down shirt, why not make a winter tank?  Mine is being made out of 3 different mohairs -- I wanted to mix colors to pull out the pink and beige in the striped shirt.
