VEST AND BONNET. The vest is knit from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round, and divided into front and back at the arm holes. The front is then divided into two and is worked separately. The shoulders are knit together at the top. The bonnet is worked from the front to the back in one piece. The ribbons are worked at the same time as the rest of the bonnet. Both pieces require only minimal finishing.
