*The vest is crocheted from the top and down and without sewing together.
*At first you form the neck, shoulder pieces and front piece, and then the work is divided in 3 parts with back piece and front piece apart, and then it is all joined again after the arm hole is created.
* There is description for both a short an a long model in the pattern.
*The finished vest will stretch approx. 1-2 cm in length and width after wash and use, so you should rather make it a bit too short than too long.
