Wandering ivy cables will keep your interest with their asymmetry while a plain background of reverse stockinette will give your mind a rest. An addictive combination of simplicity and visual interest will carry you through this fairly quick knit vest. The beautiful “Norbouillet” yarn is a joy to work with, and showcases the cable to perfection.

The vest is knit seamlessly in the round from the bottom up. The shoulder seams are made with slipped stitches and a Three-Needle Bind-Off.
