Perfect as a light layering piece, Patty Ann is a casual, open front vest knit in seed stitch with ribbed edgings. An easy knit from the bottom up, this long vest has gentle shaping at the hip and bust for an attractive fit. A few short rows shape the shoulders, which are joined with a three-needle bind off. Only minimal finishing is required; the front bands are worked at the same time as the body, then extended beyond the shoulders and seamed to the back neck, and the armhole ribbing is picked up and knit to match the ribbed hem. The lean, simple shape is easy to wear, and shows off a pretty yarn with textural stitch patterns. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Techniques Used: knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, short rows, 3-needle BO, picking up stitches. GAUGE 16 st and 30 rows/4" in seed stitch, after blocking. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size: 34 (36, 38, 40, 44, 48)" bust circumference. Patty Ann was designed to be worn open with front edges barely meeting; for a similar fit, choose a size close to your actual bust measurement.
