This is my first ever cable design and one of my most favourite knits to date. It’s a chunky cable knit V-neck vest with varsity inspired contrast striped ribbing. To give it a cute feminine vibe the central cables are hearts, along with two adorable contrast functional ties on either side. It’s slightly oversized and cropped, and the side seams are left unsewn and held together by the ties. If you’re in between sizes or want it more fitted size down. The functional tie sides means you can make it larger if you need.
