This vest features 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.

Our sample is knitted in “Haw”. Reversing the buttonhole placement also makes this a nice men’s vest.
