Sometimes subtle touches are enough to give a fresh look to a classic style. In this simple vest, the cabled V-neck design popular during the early 1990s is modified by removing the ribbing at the lower body edge, scaling the fit to body-hugging proportions, alternating six- and eight-row cable twists, and working very narrow ribbings around the armholes and neck. A contemporary tweed yarn called Everest pulls it all together.
