The sleeveless Sterling Slipover is a sophisticated knitted vest featuring squishy cables running along a background of reverse-stockinette. Each element of this pattern was thoughtfully designed with comfort and style in mind. You’ll find a 2x2 ribbed edging that is folded over and seamed to the inside of the work to create a clean, double layer of fabric along both the neckline and sleeve openings, adding width to the shoulder area and allowing you to wear a bra without showing any straps. Sterling is practical, fashionable, and polished, down to the last detail.
Let this design shine on its own or try wearing over a collared button-up for a business-casual look.
