GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * Knit 1 round and purl 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
Knit all rows. 1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

SHORT ROWS:
Work short rows, begin from neck towards armhole. Tighten yarn at every turn to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

VEST:
Worked back and forth on circular needle in parts and sewn tog when finished. Back piece is 10 cm longer than front piece.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 80-86-92-100-110-120 sts with 1 strand Fabel and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) on circular needle size 5 mm. Work in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 10 cm, cast on 1 new st at the end of the next 2 rows (marks vent) = 82-88-94-102-112-122 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 44-45-46-47-48-49 cm. Now cast on 3 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows for sleeves = 88-94-100-108-118-128 sts. When piece measures 58-60-61-63-64-66 cm, slip the middle 14-14-14-16-16-16 sts on a stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then cast off sts on every row from neck as follows: Cast off 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2 times = 31-34-37-40-45-50 sts remain for each shoulder.
When piece measures 62-64-66-68-70-72 cm, work SHORT ROWS - see explanation above, for diagonal shoulder towards armhole as follows:

Work fewer and fewer sts towards armhole as follows:
ROW 1: Work until 4-5-5-6-6-6 sts remain.
ROW 2: Turn and work back.
ROW 3: Work until 7-8-9-10-11-12 sts remain.
ROW 4: Turn and work back.
ROW 5: Work until 10-11-13-14-16-18 sts remain.
ROW 6: Turn and work back.
ROW 7: Work until 12-14-16-18-21-24 sts remain.
ROW 8: Turn and work back.
ROW 9: Work until 14-17-19-22-26-30 sts remain.
ROW 10: Turn and work back.

When all short rows have been worked, work 1 ridge over all sts for shoulder. Cast off. Work the other shoulder the same way.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work in garter stitch as front piece. When piece measures 20 cm, cast on 1 new st at the end of the next 2 rows (marks vent) = 82-88-94-102-112-122 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 54-55-56-57-58-59 cm. Now cast on 3 new sts at the end of the next 2 rows for sleeves = 88-94-100-108-118-128 sts. Continue with garter st. When piece measures 72-74-76-78-80-82 cm, work short rows for diagonal shoulder towards armholes as on front piece, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 74-76-78-80-82-84 cm cast off the middle 24-24-24-26-26-26 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Then cast off 1 st on the next row from neck = 31-34-37-40-45-50 sts remain for each shoulder.
When short rows have been worked, work 1 ridge over all sts for shoulder. Cast off. Work the other shoulder the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams with grafting/kitchener sts inside cast-off edge. Then sew the 3 sts cast on under sleeves and side seams in one down to vent in each side (i.e. until 10 cm remain on front piece and 20 cm on back piece for vent). Sew in outer loops of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam.

NECK EDGE:
Pick up from right side approx. 65-75 sts (incl sts from stitch holder) with 1 strand Fabel and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) on circular needle size 5 mm. Work 2 ridges in the round. Then knit 1 round before casting off.
