Construction Notes: This classic pullover vest is worked in one piece to the armholes, then divided for front and back. The vest features a progression from cabled ribbing at the lower edge, through an all over lattice cable pattern, into a herringbone pattern and then to stockinette stitch in the chest. All stitch patterns are given in both chart and row-by-row form.
