To attach the squares and make the neck opening. Sew up the sidesusing a whipstich from the bottom corners of your top, leaving your desired armhole depth.

Finishing

Weave in all ends, and block to size.

Note:

I gently hand washed and hung my vest to dry, letting gravity do the work to stretch and lengthen. If youwould like to make the vest a bigger size, simply repeat round 6 and add 1 extra round at a time.
