For the Love of Yarn

Cardivest #2
My second iteration of the Cardivest is a yarn lover's (me!) dream.  I used the following yarns:
Noro Taiyo, 40% Cotton, 30% Silk, 15% Nylon, 15% Wool.
Noro Kureyon, 100% Wool
Cascade Tangier,  47% Silk, 19% Acrylic, 17% Cotton, 17% Rayon
Malabrigo Rios, 100% merino wool
Malabrigo Rastita, 100% merino wool
Amazing, 53% Wool, 47% Acrylic
Silk DK 50/50, silk and merino. Wooden buttons close the fronts. 
I think this will go great with black or blue jeans. 

 The design is equal in length and width, but we are not flat and square, so I added width for the fronts, to accommodate the bosom.

 This would easily adapt to have sleeves, but lately I feel that a sleeveless garment is preferable, keeping the arms out of the dinner.
