Complete with body shaping and fully fashioned decreases at the neckline, this cabled vest is inspired by the 1920s flapper-style tennis vest, reminiscent of The Great Gatsby look. Stitches along the side seams are worked in reverse stockinette stitch so the body shaping does not interrupt the cable pattern. The back and front are worked separately; the neckband is worked simultaneously with the front. The armbands are finished with a cabled rib.
