A casual open front vest knit in seed stitch, with ribbed edging.
Patty Ann is an easy knit from the bottom up, with shaping at the hip and bust. Short rows flow neatly up the armhole to shape the shoulders, which are seamed with a three-needle bind off. The front band is knit in as you go along with no need to pick up stitches, and is extended beyond the shoulder, then sewn to the back neck. Armhole ribbing is picked up and knit for a clean finish.

Techniques Used: knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, short rows, 3-needle BO, picking up stitches.
