Greenwich Tunic Vest

Greenwich is a comfortable tunic vest that is worked from the bottom to the underarms in one piece, including the center front Moss Stitch panels. Stitches are provisionally cast on for the narrow sleeves, then the back is worked to the shoulders, which are shaped using your choice of short rows or bind-offs. The front sleeves are picked up from the provisional stitches, then the fronts are worked in a similar manner to the back to the end of the shoulders, leaving the collar stitches to be worked to the center back neck, joined using 3-Needle Bind-Off, then sewn in place. Finally, armhole edging finishes off the piece.

The main stitch pattern is presented in both written and charted formats.
