Chic, sexy, and stylish, this is a handknit luxury version of the classic insulated vest. The simple but fetching Cartridge Belt Rib stitch draws in to create a shapely garment that can be worn alone or over your favorite wool base layer. Add a winter coat for comfort in the chilliest weather or wear it with a skirt for holiday get-togethers. It’s worked in the round from the bottom up with waist shaping and a raglan yoke. The cowl neck is picked up and shaped with graduating needle sizes.
