Simple, classic vest, worked seamlessly from top down.
The fronts are worked first, followed by the back. Fronts and back are then joined onto one circular needle and the body is worked in the round towards the hem. Stitches for the ribbed edges on neck and each armhole are picked up next and each ribbing is worked in the round.
The pattern includes a photo tutorial for Tubular bind off.
Please note that the Cable pattern is charted only.
