classic cables

You can’t beat the appeal of a classic cable in a classic vintage style, v neck vest. It just never goes out of style! Using the beautifully light and warm Juniper Moon Farm Patagonia Organic Merino it’s a match made in heaven. This lovely cable stitch even has tiny little cables within the larger ones, so there’s the chunky look of the larger cable, with more details to delight, on a closer viewing!

Churchill Island Vest

Churchill Island is an historic island, connected to Phillip Island in Victoria, Australia. The historic house and farm buildings still remain, along with animals including the gorgeous Highland Cows. I can imagine residents of the island wearing a vest like this to go about their daily tasks in years gone by.

The vest is easy to wear, easy to move in, warm and light.

A fitted, cable and twist stitch patterned, hip bone length vest with a V neck and some shaping from waist to bust, in Merino, using Juniper Moon Farm Patagonia Organic Merino which Sunspun Yarns currently stock in a lovely range of 29 colours. There’s bound to be a colour that takes your fancy in subdued earthy tones, or something to make more of a splash.

Size inclusive, this is available for sizes 29 inch to 57 inch bust.

It needs 2 (2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5) skeins of 382 yards each.
