Reigen is a simple textured vest. A perfect piece for transitional weather. Knitted from the bottom up in pieces, the shoulder stitches are placed on hold and are joined using three-needle bind off. You only have to sew the side seams. Then stitches are picked up around the neckline, which is worked in 2x2 ribbing. The armholes are finished with an I-cord. The vest has a cropped length. Stitches are cast on with the amount of waist, then increased to the bust.
