This vest is all about structure and symmetry. Beginning at the center, mirrored lines of traveling stitches angle, overlap, and intersect with each other. The cabled panels are separated by narrow stockinette- stitch columns. The back is also filled with these cables, and once assembled, the intersecting lines join together at the seams. My favorite detail has to be how the center column of stitches travels seamlessly into the collar.
