The best vest that you will ever knit. Superb detailing mixed with a sexily tailored shape.

Notice the curved bottom front hem, the knit-in pockets, and the sensuous and intricate cable that dissolves into a simpler cable to help define the waist shaping. Then, there is the extended button-up collar, which can be worn out as shown, or buttoned up into a cozy turtleneck. The buttons reverse at the collar to show their best advantage. And last, but not least is the optional belt, knit wide to make a bold statement and finished with pretty horn-like double rings as the buckle.

This is one to make for yourself or for someone who is very deserving.
