This pattern has been tech edited and test knitted, and includes detailed videos on techniques specific to this design.

Pattern Notes:
This vest is knit flat in two pieces, they are joined at their tops and the collar is knit in the round from there. There is some seaming on the front for the perfect fit. The back piece has really fun heart shaped cables running down the center, with two columns of simple cables running alongside those, and berry stitch on each side. The front is a small piece with a single cable and the armholes are created when it is seamed together. Video tutorials of all techniques are provided to make this test as simple and fun as possible.
