Ribs give way to zigs and zags in Kathy Zimmermans timeless, season-spanning mans vest. The two-stitch cable strands move over just one stitch at a time to minimize the amount of draw-in. Kathys given the vest a high ribbed V-neck for a contemporary look and worked it in a rustic tweed wool for classic style.
