Product description

The Etched vest is an exercise in balance. Its undulating colorwork motif lingers between rippled sand and wire mesh, and a contemporary high-low hem is in equilibrium with a rustic fabric created by three colors of woolen-spun Loft. The construction of Etched, too, incorporates both colorwork knitting in the round for the front as well as flat knit stockinette for the back. Curious knitters will surely enjoy this harmonious tabard as both a process and product project.
