This colorful, textured vest is worked from the bottom up in two pieces, requiring seaming on the side seams and one shoulder. The other shoulder is a button band, to accommodate larger heads. The neck, arm and hem are finished with ribbing.

In addition to texture, there is one cable running up the front, off-center and in a contrasting color. The ribbing will be in different colors, as will the top and bottom textured stitches. While ideal in bright, contrasting colors this vest would also look great in neutrals.
