A stream flows over a bed of river rocks as it makes its way seaward.
Sinuous cables down the centre Front and Back of this A-line sweater vest evoke the movement of river waters while the Honeycomb Cables along the sides line the stony riverbed.
Worked downwards in one piece, the Riverbed tunic can be worked to any length you desire. Short rows provide subtle shaping at the neckline and sleeve caps. When done, it requires only minimal seaming along the side seams.
