Crochet Fluffy Meringue Vest

The Fluffy Meringue Shawl & Blanket has a new sister called the Fluffy Meringue Vest. All of these are similar in concept. The vest starts off the same way as the shawl but on Row 25, the pattern is slightly changed to include armholes. Row 26 picks up the pattern once again and then from there, it continues just like the shawl.

  1. Could someone tell me the name of the “cake” used to create the Vest??? Can’t seem to find it no matter where I look. LOVE that color combo and hoping it hasn’t been discontinued!
