NO SEW Vest - Knit Along Part III

Today my daughter watched me as I knitted away on my vest. "Mommy, will you make one for me?" Oh, those puppy-dog could I resist? So, I put my vest on hold and today's post is done using her little vest.

...NO SEW VEST continued

On our last post, you were to work the BACK until it measures 9 (9, 9 1/2, 9 1/2, 10)" from Armhole shaping.

NOW Work first 9 (10, 11, 12, 13) sts and slide on stitch holder, bind off next 18 sts, then work remaining 9 (10, 11, 12, 13) sts and place on stitch holder. Cut yarn. Set that part aside and now we'll work the FRONT.

Move 42 (44, 46, 48, 50) Front stitches back on to needle. See photo below.

Reattach yarn. BO 3 sts at the beg on the next 2 rows. These and all remaining rows are worked in st st (k 1 row, p 1 row). Continue in st st until panel measures 3" from Armhole shaping.

Divide for Neck Shaping
Work across first 18 (19, 20, 21, 22) sts. This is the Center of the FRONT. Attach a second ball of yarn and work remaining 18 (19, 20, 21, 22) sts. See photo below.

Continuing in st st (k 1 row, p 1 row), decrease 1 st at neck edge of every other row, 9 times until 9 (10, 11, 12, 13) sts remain.

HINT: When working with two balls, it will allow you to work BOTH side of the FRONT. So to work a row, you will work across the row to the second ball of yarn. Set down the first ball and pick up the second ball then continue across the row. The photo below will show you how your project will look.

Work even until panel measures 9 (9, 9 1/2, 9 1/2, 10)" from armhole and matches length of BACK. Place remaining sts on holder.

Tomorrow - 3 needle bind off and picking up stitches for sleeve and neck trim.
