Carats Vest is a classic knitted sweater vest with twisted-stitch detailing. Three twisted stitch diamond cables frame the front and a separate and adjustable waist-cinching accessory accents the back, making the fit of the vest quite personalized and adding a charming little detail. The simplicity of the ribbing and the unique diamond twisted-stitch cables make this sweater vest the perfect addition to any wardrobe.
