A summer staple, this vest features a classic boat neck and hits the hipline, offering a flattering choice to wear solo or as a layering piece. This sleeveless top is worked from the bottom up in the round to the armholes. Front and back are then worked flat and the shoulders seamed for stability. The neckline and armholes are finished neatly with garter stitch.
