Long before European settlers arrived in the mountains around Franklin, North Carolina, the foothills were home to the Cherokee Nation. This vest, from Kristin Murphy of Silver Threads & Golden Needles is inspired by traditional Native American patterns, but knit in a modern natural color palette. Its long, lean lines will make you look taller and slimmer. It’s mountain magic.
