Your kitty will look dashing in this scholarly v-neck vest featuring mock cable rib and a simple fish motif. The vest is worked in the round from the bottom-up to the armholes and then flat for the back and front, joined at the shoulders using the 3-needle bind-off. Not just for laughs, this vest is a low stress way to try knitting in the round, 2-color knitting, short-row shoulder shaping, and the sewn bind-off. This pattern is written for my 20lb cat, and may need to be adjusted for more average sizes.
