Pattern Description:

Casual, cabled vest with no shaping! A great beginner project, this stitch pattern features faux cabling that looks great from either side, making the entire piece reversible! No need to know how to work a cable here; all the patterning is done through the use of yarn overs and simple decreases. Wear it open for a flowy, bohemian look, or pin it shut or belt it for more styling options! The 3-page PDF includes both chart and written instructions.
