Opposite: This vest is a show-stopper both coming and going. Alternating bands of Fair Isle on the front and a knit-in plaid pattern on the back, in varying wintry shades of Debbie Bliss/KFI’s Rialto DK, make it a stunner from every angle. The unexpected contrast of patterns, k2, p2 ribbing at all edges and double decreases in the center of the V-shaped neckband contribute to the bespoke feel.

Colorways used are #04 Grey (A), #51 Indigo (B), #72 Ocean (C), #09 Apple (D), and #19 Duck Egg (E).
