Vest No. 1 by My Favourite Things is a classic slipover that we love because it fits perfectly on top of shirts and dresses.

The vest is worked top down in stockinette stitch.

First, you knit the top part of the back, then both front pieces, close the yoke in the round and work the rest of the body.

The neckline and armhole opening edges are picked up from existing stitches and therefore no final sewing is needed (hooray!)
