When a chill starts to pepper the air, a sweater vest is your ultimate layering piece. It adds a put-together look to any outfit, and they look even better when knit using an exquisite yarn like Cassatt. The Emma vest takes a texture-rich yarn and uses a simple lace stitch pattern and stripes to make it the focal point. The lace creates a pretty scalloped hemline, and breezy shaping means you’ll complete this project in no time.
