Cable Knit Sweater Vest

I am a huge fan of sweater vests. No matter what age!


This cutie little sweater vest is for boys or girls. Personalize it with fun buttons to really make this one stand out. Cables take some getting used to but once you get the hang of it you will sail right through.


Enjoy!
