Lion Brand Notes:

Each pattern ridge is 2 rows of knitting. The vest is worked by casting on the top and side outer edges. As you work, you decrease 2 stitches on every other row creating a diagonal ridge.

Sew shoulder seams leaving approximately 9” open for neck. Fold back both upper front corners and tack in place with a button at each corner. Work Underarm Panels, Lower Band, and Armhole Bands. Sew on button in front.
