Pattern Description:

Designed by Therese Chynoweth.

The diamond and mini cable patterns on this vest work up beautifully in this yak/cormo wool blend yarn. Cabled designs are fun to knit as you watch the lines of the cables snake their way up the piece. The texture of the cables is a perfect match for the subtle texture of the yarn. Simple garter stitch edgings elegantly frame the piece without detracting from the cable patterns.
