Getting sidetracked has never been so much fun! Or so quick! We all know how easy it is to get sidetracked! And this vest is no exception! This happy little vest is knit sideways, starting at the front in a delightful openwork pattern. Then, we get ourselves sidetracked into stockinette stitch for the front, and then sidetracked back into the openwork pattern for the underarms. What happens next? Guess you'll just have to knit it and find out! So go ahead - get sidetracked. You'll love it. Guaranteed.
