Coastal knotwork intersects academic cables in Chenier’s elegant composition. Innovative braids frame the central iterations of this elevated vest, creating balance between the high tucked-rib neckline and the swingy split hem. Equally at home penning poems on a craggy coastline as nursing a cup of tea in front of a toasty fire, Chenier works wonderfully into your lifestyle in any of Arbor’s luxe colorways.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this garment include written as well as charted instructions.
