UraUe Plain is a pattern I created in collaboration with Atelier fil and yonayonaknitting.

UraUe Plain is a Stockinette stitch version of UraUe.
It is a relaxed-fit vest worked seamlessly from the top down and can be reversed. Instructions include two types of body length: short and long. The neckline is shaped with German short rows and stitches are increased to shoulder width. The front and back yokes are then worked separately to underarm during which the back armhole is made longer than the front. They are joined again and the body is worked in the round with side faux seams to the stepped hem for the short version, to the slit for the long version. The front and back hems are worked flat separately. They are the same length for the long version.

The pattern instructions are written, not charted.

Please note that yardage is estimated and can vary depending on your yarn, gauge, modifications, etc.
Note 1: For size S both short and long versions, the yardage shown will be plenty. However, with the correct gauge and no modification to the pattern, it is likely that you will be able to knit the vest with one less skein than the yardage above (you may have to unravel the swatch). For size 2XL short version, the amount of yarn shown may be used up and have to unravel the swatch.
