Button Box

Introducing the Button Box vest – inspired by a favorite fabric top I wore to the workplace some years ago in my past business life.  This is a cropped top with side slits at the hips, and buttons down the back.  I love the way it finishes off a simple jersey and skirt (or slacks) combination, and works really well with jeans too.  The stitch is kept simple in this translation – all garter – to showcase its lines.  Short rows at its front and back hems create a dip at their centers that is echoed by the wide scoop of its neckline.  This piece is worked without seams from the bottom up.  Garter trimming at the neckline and armholes finishes off these edges.  You'll find this to be a quick knit and a fun project with lots of versatility and years of wear-ability to be sure.
