Pattern Description:

Pineland is an asymmetrical seamless vest, knit all in one piece. Front bands and armhole bands are worked as you knit, so there's no picking up of stitches at the end. It features an easy lace rib stitch and the finished vest can be worn in a variety of ways. In the photographs here, a shawl pin is used to keep the vest closed and the collar is folded down. Buttons can also be attached to the garter band on the left front and the lace rib stitch on the right front can be used as buttonholes. The collar can also be worn up simply by placing the shawl pin or buttons closer to the neck. Since there is no need to plan in advance for buttonholes, you can wait until you have finished the vest and try it on to decide how you prefer to wear it.
