Construction Notes
This vest is knit in the round, from the bottom up. Once you reach the underarms, work the front and the back flat then join together at the shoulder seams with three needle bind off. Now the special touches begin. Pick up the stitches on the arm holes and edge in a garter stitch border. Finally, pick up stiches around the neck and knit using short rows to form a shawl collar.
