Notes The body of this vest is worked back and forth in one piece from the lower edge to the underarm, then the upper fronts and back are worked separately. The hood is worked from stitches picked up around the neck on the larger needle so that the hood has more drape than the body. Edgings are all worked in seed stitch, and the front bands continue unbroken from the bottom of the body all around the hood.
