Benjamin Vest

It's been a while since I made a post. I've been so busy this past weeks. Holidays are the busiest. I cannot even have a proper long sleep. We are always on the move attending so many year-end parties and Christmas parties. And my son was sick also, I thinks he was just tired from all our travels and did not have enough rest. But he is okay now, recovering every fast. Not this son who is modeling the vest, my youngest was the one who is sick. Just excuse this son for his face, that is his "serious model look" face. lol.

This sweater has been long over due.  I've finished this last month but have not much time to sit in front of the computer and write the pattern down. But here it is now, and hope everyone enjoys this.

Row 3. SC in first st on both loops, then sc on BLO in next 4 sts. And sl st into the next sc of the armhole.

Row 4-45. Repeat Row 2 and 3. Then join both end with a sl st or you can also whip stitch them both together.

Do this pattern also on the other armhole.

Center Ribbing (without buttonholes)

Attached your yarn at the edge of the vest then chain 1, and sc in first st and the all the stitches uo to the neckline until you reach the opposite edge of the vest. Remember to make 2 sc in each side of a dc that you encounter.

Row 1. Then chain 6, sc in 2nd ch from the hook, then sc all the way down ( 5sc). Then sl st back into the first sc.

Row 2. Sl st in next st, then sc up in BLO in next 4 st, sc on both loops in last st. Chain 1, turn.

Row 3. SC in first st on both loops, then sc on BLO in next 4 sts. And sl st into the next sc of the armhole.

Repeat Row 2 and 3 until you reached the opposite end of your vest.

Center Ribbing (with buttonholes)

Attached your yarn at the edge of the vest then chain 1, and sc in first st and the all the stitches uo to the neckline until you reach the opposite edge of the vest. Remember to make 2 sc in each side of a dc that you encounter.

Row 1. Then chain 6, sc in 2nd ch from the hook, then sc all the way down ( 5sc). Then sl st back into the first sc.

Row 5. Repeat Row 2
Row 6. Repeat Row 3
Row 7. Repeat Row 2
Row 8. Repeat Row 3
Row 9. Repeat Row 4.

Repeat Row 5 to 9, three (3) more times to make five(5) buttonholes for your vest. Then the next rows will be a repeat of Row 2 and 3 until you reach the other end of your vest.

Fasten off and weave all your ends. Then attached your buttons.


This is how it looks without the buttons.
And this one with buttons.
