BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 148-168-184 (204-224) sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1 with Baby Merino. Work first row as follows from RS: 5 sts in GARTER ST (= band) - see explanation above, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 7 sts remain, finish with K 2 and 5 sts in GARTER ST (= band). Continue rib like this with 5 sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 3-3-4 (4-5) cm / 1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1½" (1½"-2") - REMEMBER BUTTON HOLES on band - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 and work in stockinette st but continue bands in garter st as before. AT THE SAME TIME on first row after rib, dec 32-36-40 (44-52) sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 116-132-144 (160-172) sts. Insert a marker 31-35-39 (43-45) sts in from each side (= 54-62-66 (74-82) sts between markers on back piece). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 7-7½-8 (9-10) cm / 2 3/4"-2 7/8"-3 1/8" (3½"-4"), work next row as follows from RS: 5 sts in garter st, 21-21-27 (27-31) sts in stockinette st, slip the last 16-16-20 (20-24) sts that were worked on a stitch holder for pocket slit, work until 10-10-12 (12-12) sts remain on needle, slip the last 16-16-20 (20-24) sts that were worked on a stitch holder for pocket slit, work 5-5-7 (7-7) sts in stockinette st and finish with 5 sts in garter st. On next row cast on 16-16-20 (20-24) new sts over each of the 2 stitch holders with sts = 116-132-144 (160-172) sts. Continue in stockinette st and in garter st until piece measures 13-14-16 (16-18) cm / 5 1/8"-5½"-6 1/4" (6 1/4"-7"). Now K 4 rows over all sts (= 2 ridges). Then work DOUBLE SEED ST - see explanation above (continue bands in garter st as before). READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! When piece measures 15-17-18 (20-21) cm / 6"-6 3/4"-7" (8"-8 1/4"), work 2 rows in garter st over the first 5 sts on needle (do not work the other sts on needle), then work 1 row over all sts before working 2 rows in garter st over the first 5 sts on needle in the other side of piece (this is done so that the V-neck looks nice). Then dec for V-neck - see explanation above: Dec 1 st every other row (i.e. every row from RS) a total of 12-13-16 (16-16) times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16-17-19 (20-22) cm / 6¼''-6¾''-7½'' (8''-8¾''), work 4 rows in garter st over the middle 18-20-20 (20-20) sts in each side (i.e. over 9-10-10 (10-10) sts on each side of both markers) – work the other sts as before. On next row, bind off the middle 8-10-10 (10-10) sts in each side for armhole and finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 46-52-56 (64-72) sts. Work double seed st with 5 sts in garter st in each side (= sleeve edges). AT THE SAME TIME dec for armholes - see explanation above: Dec 1 st every other row (i.e. on every row from RS) a total of 5-6-6 (6-6) times = 36-40-44 (52-60) sts. Continue in double seed st and in garter st until piece measures 24-26-29 (31-34) cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11 3/8" (12 1/4"-13 3/8"). Now work in garter st over all sts until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 25-27-30 (32-35) cm / 9 3/4"-10 5/8"-11 3/4" (12½"-13 3/4"), bind off the middle 16-18-20 (20-24) sts for neck = 10-11-12 (16-18) sts remain on each shoulder. Now finish each shoulder separately. Continue with garter st until piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm / 10 1/4"-11"-12 1/4" (13"-14 1/4"), bind off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Continue with double seed st and in garter st while AT THE SAME TIME dec for armhole in the side as on back piece and continue dec for V-neck as before. After last dec, 10-11-12 (16-18) sts remain on needle. Work garter st over all sts until piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm / 10 1/4"-11"-12 1/4" (13"-14 1/4") and bind off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work as left front piece but reversed.

POCKET FLAP:
Slip the 16-16-20 (20-24) sts from stitch holder on one front piece back on needle size 2.5 mm / US 1or2. Work rib K2/P2 with 1 st in garter st and K 2 in each side (seen from RS).
When pocket flap measures 2½-2½-3 (3-3) cm / 7/8"-7/8"-1 1/8" (1 1/8"-1 1/8"), loosely bind off with K over K and P over P.
Sew pocket flap to front piece with duplicate sts in each side. Sew pocket opening to bottom of pocket flap (where sts were put on a stitch holder) on the back of piece. Work another pocket flap the same way on the other front piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew on buttons.

I have completed the pattern to the casting off of the 10 sts and assume I have to rejoin the yarn to the back and continue on.

Barbara 07.08.2018 - 05:28:

Hola! Tengo una pregunta respecto de las disminuciones que hay que hacer luego del resorte. La pregunta es si los puntos indicados hay que reducirlos todos en una vuelta o si se van reduciendo 2 puntos del lado derecho hasta alcanzar el número de puntos indicados. Desde ya, muchas gracias!

DROPS Design 07.08.2018 kl. 18:11:

Hola Barbara. Después del elástico las disminuciones se trabajan repartidas en la primera fila en punto jersey ( el número de puntos para disminuir depende de la talla)

Margarita Castillo Martinez 01.08.2018 - 21:06:

Me pueden explicar como se hacen las disminuciones para el cuello del chaleco, soy de México y me encantan sus modelos

DROPS Design 07.08.2018 kl. 19:55:

Hola Margarita. Para el escote del chaleco se utilizan dos técnicas: las disminuciones dentro de la cenefa del escote y las vueltas cortas trabajadas sobre los puntos de la cenefa del escote. Las disminuciones se explican antes del patrón, en un apartado, y este video te podría ayudar a elaborar el escote correcto:

Inmiddels ben er achter na nog een keer goed lezen viel het kwartje

Tonnie Höfelt 11.07.2018 - 15:35:

Hallo, ik ben nu bij 16 cm hoogte, ik heb 46 steken in de midden voor het achterpand....35 steken na iedere markeerder....als ik 9 steken aan beide kanten in ribbelsteek brei en er dan weer acht afkant hou ik dus 27 over als ik dan de alle steken van de v hals heb geminderd hou ik dus meer dan 10 steken over voor de schouder.....wat doe ik niet goed

Willa A 15.06.2018 - 10:54:

I have enjoyed working on this pattern and after a few wrong turns have now finished - except for the pockets! I am a bit confused by the following direction: “Work rib K2/P2 with 1 st in garter st and K 2 in each side (seen from RS).” What does “with 1 stitch in garter stitch and K2 in each side” mean? Does it mean K2 on each end of the row? But what 1 stitch in garter stitch mean? Thank you!

DROPS Design 15.06.2018 kl. 11:35:

Dear Mrs Willa, work the sts for pocket as follows, seen from RS: 1 st in garter st (seam allowance), then repeat (K2/P2) until 3 sts remain, finish row with K2, and 1 st in garter st (seam allowance). From WS, work: K1, P2, and repeat (K2/P2) to the last st, finish with K1. Happy knitting!

Ali 22.05.2018 - 01:17:

Hello, What does it mean when it says \"work as left front piece but reversed"? I'm not sure how to reverse this: \r\nContinue with double moss st and in garter st while AT THE SAME TIME dec for armhole in the side as on back piece and continue dec for V-neck as before. After last dec, 10-11-12 (16-18) sts remain on needle. Work garter st over all sts until piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm and cast off. Thank you!

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 10:37:

Dear Ali, on right front piece you will also bind off fro armhole towards back piece (= decrease at the end of row from RS instead of at the beg of row from RS for left front piece) and decrease for neck at the beg of row from RS (instead of at the end of row from RS). Happy knitting!

Susan 29.04.2018 - 03:08:

Does the knitted Drops vest with V-line come with instructions to fit a 5-6 year old?

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:43:

Dear Susan, this pattern goes to size 3/4 years only. For a vest in a larger size, please look at our patterns for vest, children. Happy knitting!

Sheryl White 29.04.2018 - 01:19:

Is the total decrease for each armpit is only 10 stitches or 20 stitches

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:41:

See answer below :)

Sheryl White 29.04.2018 - 01:10:

Hi I have only ended up with 42 sts for back piece I have recounted and recounted sure I did it right I don't know where I went wrong

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 10:41:

Dear Mrs White, you bind off for armhole 10 sts on each side, ie 5 sts on each side of each marker, so that only 10 sts will be cast off for back piece (= 5 sts at the beg of back piece, after marker and 5 sts at the end of back piece, before 2nd marker) = 52 sts remain in 2nd size. Happy knitting!
