Easy Vest


I like wearing vests . They keep me warm ,while I can still show off my new shirt .
The problem is I can never seem to find a good pattern can follow , so instead I searched for the best pattern I could find and rewrited it while knitting it .So here it is !!😋

Materials :
Size US 7 circular knitting needles 
Size US 6 set of double pointed needles ( you will only need three as you will knit in magic loop method for armhole ribbing )
Worsted weight yarn
Tapestry needle ( for weaving in ends )
Stitch markers ( very important )

Instructions :
Cast on 62 stitches on your size 7 use knitting needles 
 
K1 place marker (pm) k15 pm k30 pm k15 pm k1
Purl 1 row
Knit increasing either side of marker
Purl
Repeat last 2 rows until there are 9/31/46/31/9 stitches ending with a purl row
Knit to 1 stitch before marker, increase in next stitch
Cast off 30 stitches
Purl back stitches to 1 stitch before marker, increase in next stitch
Cast off 30 stitches,
Knit to end

Ok now we have to cast on stitches for the neckline in the front ,
Purl one row ,
and knit the next row ,and when you reach the end cast on 30 stitches and join in the round
Knit in the round until you reach your desired length of your vest 

When you have reached your desired length ,knit in 2x2 rib for half and inch 

Neckline ribbing:
Pick up stitches Across the neckline starting from the back neckline piece and pick up stitches ,working your way
To the front neckline piece And when done join in the round knit in 2x2 rib for half an inch

Armholes ribbing:
Pick up stitches around the armholes and join in the round . Knit in 2x2 rib for half an inch 
Repeat on second armhole
