Knitting: Vest
This vest is inspired by the knitted vests my father-in-law used to wear; V-neck vests, buttoned in front. He’d never wear them open, and neither would I – so I make a faux button band, and just attached it after knitting the vest itself in the round (avoiding miles and miles of purling…).
