If knitting be the food of love, knit on; / That comfort wrap this threadbare heart once more / And find it suits for ball or garden stroll / Whose cables thou hast wrought with finest skill

Dapper, functional, and comfortable, Orsino’s Vest can add a relaxed vibe to a three-piece suit or be worn with jeans and a tie for a casual office look. The vest is worked in one piece from the bottom up to the armholes and then divided. The simple rope cables can be worked without a cable needle for speedy knitting.
