This vest and cardigan feature traditional cables with a large cable placed at the shoulders. It is knitted flat from the bottom up and sewn together. The cabled button bands are knitted as part of the vest fronts then extend as a band around the back neck edge. Short row shaping is used for shoulder shaping and to shape the neck band.

While there is no waist shaping, choosing a size with no ease will create the illusion of shaping. The cardigan version is shown with several inches of ease. The vest is worn with no ease.

The vest is knitted in sport weight “Ecru”and the cardigan is knitted in sport weight “Cinnamon”.
