A comfortable casual featherlight loose knit vest with short sleeves. The bodice is worked in Moss Stitch, with bands in K1, P1 rib. Knitted with Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre yarn. Sleeves are worked into the bodice front and back, so there are no joins betweens bodice and sleeves. Very easy for a beginner (with some Moss Stitch experience). Moss Stitch is as follows

With an uneven number of stitches.

Row 1 (RS) *K1, P1; rep from * to last K1.

Row 2 (WS) *K1, P1; rep from * to last K1. 

Repeat row 2.
