The fascinating construction of this vest is fun to knit and very quick. Started at the back of the neck you work down the front of each side and work around to the back using short rows. Both sides of the back are worked until they join and are grafted together.
This vest is knitted with a very heavy recycled silk that gives it a very distinctive look.
