Olive's Vest - Kids - English

€5
Olive’s Vest is a classic and simple slipover for kids worked from the top down in stockinette stitch using 1 strand of Merino and 1 strand of Soft Silk Mohair. You begin with the folded ribbed neckband and continue with neckline shaping using German short rows before working each front and back piece separately down to the underarms. From here, you continue in the round before finishing the body with a ribbed hem. Lastly, you pick up stitches around the armholes and finish with a folded ribbed edge.
