Short Description:Olivia is a great stash-bustingtransition piece, more than a vest,but not quite a sweater. It’s aneasy piece to layer thanks to thecompletely open sides abovethe waist ribbing. You can knitit with either the YO or Bobblepattern in the center panel. Itbegins at the top of the shoulderwith a provisional cast-on, and theBack and Front are knitted downseparately from there, using shortrow shaping to slope the shoulders.Front and Back are joined at thewaist and the 3×3 ribbing is knittedin the round — so no seaming!
