Kishie

Design Eline Alcocer
Yarn La Bien Aimée

The classic basketweave stitch gets a clean, contemporary upgrade in the Kishie vest. The shape of the deep V-neck is mirrored in the front and back ribbing which receive different, but complementary, treatment; the back is a solid triangle of ribbing and the front cut-out creates a high-low hemline.
