This vest is knitted from the bottom up, with vents knitted separately, then joined so that the vest is knitted in one piece to the armholes. A dramatic cable is used in the front and back as a "dart" to create gentle waist shaping. A mirrored Rope Cable accents the vents and front of the vest, and the front cable continues to the back to create a lovely back neck edge. It's fun and easy to knit- and a perfect cool weather piece. Our sample is knitted in our "Blue Stone" worsted weight yarn.
