Vest No. 2 is an oversized slipover, inspired by classic menswear, and fits perfectly on top of shirts and dresses.

The vest is knit top down. First you knit the top part of the back, then both front pieces. The yoke is closed to the round and the rest of the body is knit.

Neckline and armhole opening borders are picked up from existing stitches and no final sewing is needed.
