K2.15 3 Button Vest

"This stylish vest knits up easily in a one-piece construction with minimal sewing," says Love. "Using two strands of sport weight yarn, the body is worked in a seed stitch for shape and texture. The 3-button closure and a K1, P1 rib help define the waist while the ever-so-slightly capped shoulder shaping and deep armholes give the vest balance and proportion. The edge is crocheted with a single strand slip stitch for a smooth finish. This is a V-neck classic that is sure to become a year-round standard." Note that the sport-weight yarn is used doubled for the body of the piece, and the gauge given reflects that.
