Pattern Notes

This vest is worked sideways using short rows to shape the yoke and a-line side shaping. The row gauge is the most important gauge to achieve as this is what will determine the final circumference of the garment. The sleeves are finished using DPNS and a small border of Garter stitch that is picked up and worked after completing the main body. This pattern also contains notes on how to add or subtract short rows for the a-line shaping, be advised that if you make changes to the number of short rows in the waist shaping the garment will no longer match the schematic.
