PATTERN NOTES
This vest is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarm, then the fronts and back are worked separately back and forth.

Larger sizes may be more comfortable using a 40” circular needle for the body of the vest. All stitch counts assume 4 stitches for the Mock Cable chart and 8 stitches for each Raindrop chart.
