Carats Vest is a classic sweater vest with twisted-stitch detailing. Three twisted stitch diamond cables frame the front and a separate and adjustable waist-cinching accessory accents the back, making the fit of the vest quite personalized and adding a charming little detail. The simplicity of the ribbing and the unique diamond twisted-stitch
cables make this sweater vest the perfect addition to any wardrobe.

My grandmothers were the reason I love hand-work and crafts so much. As soon as I was able to manage a needle and thread, they gave me craft-related responsibilities abound. My earliest crafting photo is me at 5 years old sitting atop a table making a foam cake base in deep concentration, craft glue in one hand and crepe paper in the other.
