Cherokee Vest

Franklin, North Carolina.

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.
