Mitzie Fake Fur Gilet
This flattering gilet made in our chunky yarn and so super soft and warm. Knitted in three pieces, shaped with darts and short row shaping, fitted into the small of the back with curved panel at hem to keep your lower back warm. The fake fur effect is achieved within the knitting and anyone who has made either Al Paca or Cate will know how to do this stitch. Mitzie is the perfect body warmer for walking your dog but as we didn’t have one, we used Shadow instead!
Mitzie Gilet is knitted in Purl Alpaca Chunky Yarn and photographed in the natural white colour (Ivory).
