Product Description

You'll be reaching for this vest again and again as your "go to" layering piece! Its mid-thigh length is both dramatic and slimming.

A beautiful, wide, interweaving cable design is the center motif on the back. The same cable design is cut in half and echoed on the fronts, which mirror each other. Wide ribbed front bands, knit-in pockets, and shaped shawl collar add to the sophistication.

A unique tie-front closure is the perfect finish for this easy-to-wear piece.

It's knit from the bottom up in one-piece. The only seaming is at the shoulders, at the back neck to join the two halves of the collar, and the pocket linings.

The Knit Picks Swish Bulky yarn used in this sample is dark heather blue - elegant for dressy occasions and so wearable for casual outings. It's soft and lightweight to keep this layer comfortable.
