The Teddy vest is knitted seamlessly from the top down. The body of the vest is knitted in a boucle yarn held double, which gives the vest a dense and fluffy look. You can also work the vest without the boucle yarn, in that case use two strands of worsted weight yarn or a single strand of bulky weight yarn.

The bottom hem is sloped and the edges of the vest are worked as i-cords, which give them a finished look. Lastly one duffel button is attached to the front and the button loop is worked as an i-cord.
