Before you start knitting a vest, be carefulchoose its length, because just a few extra centimeters can completely change the waistcoat beyond recognition. This also applies to the cutout. So, let's start by directly knitting a waistcoat. We need (size S): yarn (50 percent acrylic, 50 percent wool, 250 meters per 100 grams) - about 300 grams of gray, circular knitting needles No. 4 and No. 2,5, and ordinary knitting needles No. 2,5 and No. 3; as well as beautiful buttons. At first, the elastic band 2 on 2 is knitted in this way: two front loops and two purlins are knitted alternately. Wrong surface: front rows - purl loops, and vice versa. Density knitting: for 28 rows - 20 loops on spokes size 3 = 10 by 10 cm. Crochet back: 84 loops are typed on knitting needles 2,5, we knit 10 cm with elastic band 2 by 2. Next it is necessary to replace the knitting needles to size 3 and knit as follows: 10 loops of the inner surface, 15 stitches of the braid, 32 loops of the inner surface, 15 loops of the braid, 10 loops purplish smoothness. At an altitude of about 24 cm from the bound rubber band for the armhole, it is necessary to close each side in each second row once with 5 loops and 2 times one loop. In total there will be 70 loops. Then you need to knit straight. At an altitude of approximately 18 cm, close the 22 loops in the middle for the neck and complete each side separately. To round the notch, it is necessary to close on the inside in each second row once three loops and once two loops each. In total there will be 19 loops. At the height of the armhole of about 20 cm, it will be necessary to close the remaining loops of the future arm. The other side of the neck is joined symmetrically. The left shelf: on the spokes number 2, 5, dial 40 loops, knit with an elastic band 2 to 2. Next, replace the spokes with No. 3 and knit as follows: 10 stitching loops, 15 stitch loops, 13 stitching loops. At a height of about 24 cm from the rubber for the armhole on the right, close the loops in each 2 rows once with 5 loops and 2 times in 1 loop. Simultaneously with the beginning of knitting the armhole on the left side, it will be necessary to close in each 4 rows 14 times one loop. At an altitude of about 20 cm, close the remaining 19 loops of the future shoulder. The right shelf is symmetrical. Assembly must be done carefully by joining the seams in one layer. The waistcoat is ready! Wear it to your health!
