Cloud Chaser

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • cable
  • measure gauge

Pattern Description:

The Cloud Chaser vest is a design I've been dreaming of for years. Delicately cabled. Dramatically draped.

The back features full cables, knit from hem to neck. The fronts are knit side to side, with a single cable detail near the edge. But the collar is the highlight here; wide and cabled and framing the neckline perfectly.

This seasonless layer is great over tanks, tees, or long sleeves. Equally great with jeans or even something more dressy, it's the perfect wardrobe extender.
