The vest is knitted bottom up, and starts with a rib. The first part is worked in the round. The last part is worked back and forth, when it's time to cast off for armholes.

The cast off for the V-neck in front starts a few rows afterword. The ribs for the armhole edges and the neck edge are worked at last.


The story about vest boy


This vest was made for Aud B’s son, for use in kindergarten. Especially considering use in the springtime and autumn, when the temperature is in the middle between mild and cold. When the kids need something to keep them warm, and still be able to jump and run without the clothes preventing movement.
