I think I say this in the pattern notes, but the green part? That's the fad part. Because, let's be real, there's no way that color green could sustain us for even a half-season. But for now, it is sensational. Honestly. It is simply great. (I even bought a fabulous green purse the other day. I'm using it as much as possible, because, well, you know, before I know it, POOF! Bye bye green. Hello purple! Hello yellow!...and so on.)
The classic part has to do with the vest. The vest has been with us for as long as the years will reveal and there are so many ways you can wear one. If you're cold, wear it under something like a nice linen jacket. If you're not, wear it over a t-shirt like the way I'm wearing mine. Or, go ahead and wear a camisole underneath. I designed it so your undergarment straps will be hidden.
The stitch pattern hints of "crochet," but it isn't. It is a simple, four-row/round repeat. Plus, the vest is knit from the top down, and in the round, so there are no seams. There aren't even any seams on the tops of the shoulders!
Fad-Classic is perfect for an intermediate knitter. If you're an adventurous beginner who knows how to knit in the round and follow and incorporate a stitch pattern, go for it.
