Thoughtful construction makes this layering vest a standout example of how knitwear can be infinitely cool and wearable. Knit in one piece to the underarms, Sachiko devised a plan to join the front and back pieces in a way that simultaneously creates cap sleeves. Simple moss stitch, pockets, and classic toggles add understated functionality.
