Short Description: Pine cables play on the center of this oversized vest, named Var, Norse for beloved. The side panels - giving the vest a dropped shoulder appearance - are knitted sideways in broken rib and is divided from the cable pattern with a tuck as well as a reverse stocking stitch band. Var ends in an I-cord bind off around the shallow neck. The vest is knitted in the luscious pelt wool yarn Tinde from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
