How to knit a vest on the needles

You will need
  • - 300-500 g of yarn of average thickness (the length of the thread in the ball is 250-300 m);
  • - Knitting needles number 1.5 and number 2.
  • - paper;
  • - graph paper;
  • - pencil;
  • - tape measure.
For a vest you need to know a few measurements. Measure the total length of the product in the middle of the back, from the cervical vertebra to the intended bottom line. You also need to know the length from the bottom line to the armhole, the half-grip of the widest part of your body (i.e., chest or hips, depending on the type of figure), shoulder length and depth of cut.
If you're just learning to knit, make a piece. It will be useful to you in the future, and you can make it from any suitable pattern of a vest, both knitted and sewn. In the latter case, remove the undercuts, mark the lines of the bar, slightly expand the armhole and cutout under the gum.
Tie the sample. Calculate the number of loops vertically and horizontally. Calculate how many loops you need to dial for a row that is equal in size to the bar line that you marked on the shelf.It is better to tie the bar itself later, it will turn out more elastic. Calculate the length of the product without the lower gum.
Begin to knit the facial surface. Decide where you will have the bottom line. It should remain straight, but at the second edge, immediately begin to add loops, depending on the shape of the notch. V-neck is very popular. For him, add 1 loop in every fourth row. Do not forget to try on the product on the pattern. As soon as you see that you have finished the cut to the shoulder line, stop adding loops.
Carry the fabric in a straight line to the armhole line. Close the hinge part to the height of the armhole. Continue to knit until side seam. You will not have it, because the shelf smoothly passes into the back. Seam lines are only needed as landmarks. After you reach the side seam, tie a few more centimeters and add as many loops as you closed the armhole on the side of the shelf.
The notch line at the back is almost straight. To make the vest sit well and not bristle up from above, gradually lower some loops. Tie to the point of the beginning of the shoulder and close on 1 loop after 5-6 rows. Starting from the middle of the back, add loops in the same sequence. In a straight line tie up to the beginning of the armhole.Do not forget that the halves of the back should be symmetrical.
Perform the armhole, as you have already done. Tie up to the second side seam and try on the product to the pattern. Further the sequence is as follows; Knit in a straight line to the edge of the armhole on the side of the shelf. Add as many loops as you closed, knit right before the cut. Along the cut-out line, reduce the hinges in the same way as you added them at the very beginning of work. As a result, you should get a vest, the back of which is strictly consistent with the pattern, and the shelves are already the width of the bar.
Sew the shoulder seams. Type on the circular needles of a smaller diameter loop on the bottom of the product. Depending on the thickness of the thread, their number will be different. If the threads are thick, dial 3 loops for every 2 loops of pigtails. In other cases, you need to dial 2 loops from each pigtail. Make sure the knitting is not too loose or too stretched. Try to keep the number of loops in the gum on the shelves the same. Tie a 1x1 or 2x2 elastic to the desired length.
On the same circular needles dial loops on the bar and trim the cut. Where you already have a rubber band, dial 2 loops into each pigtail or 3 loops from 2 braids. On the section of the fastener and the collar, dial one from each loop.
Knit a rubber band half the width of the plank, then make a loop on one of the shelves. In this case, vertical slotted loops are more convenient. In one row, close at equal intervals the same number of loops, and in the next one add the same amount. Follow the gum to the width of the strap. Then knit a row on the hem with purl loops. Tie up the holes, close and add the loops and finish the elastic. Sew or tie its free edge. Button holes can be crocheted.
Armholes are more convenient to tie up on five knitting needles, but you can also use circular ones of the same number as for all other rubber bands. Knit the elastic in a circle to the desired width, then knit the purl row to the hem and finish the inside of the harness, which must also be sewn or tied to the canvas. After that you will only have to sew on buttons.
