Designer’s Notes:
Fit:
This pattern is written for a knee-length vest with an option for a shorter version. It is sized to fit the hips, but instructions are given to alter the pattern if the bust measurement is larger or smaller than the hip measurement.

Construction:
The vest is knit from the bottom up starting with left and right front panels and a back panel, which are then joined to form the body of the vest. Instructions are given for left and right inset pockets. At the underarm, the body is again divided with left and right shoulder and back panels knit up separately and then joined at the shoulder. Lastly, a Center Band is knit up one side, around the neck, and down the other side.
