Tuxedo Vest Ribbing

    I must admit, I haven't been keeping up knitting the vest as much lately, but I have spent enough time on it to bind off at the bottom of the body. I joined the vest in the round to make it a pullover and have knit the ribbing at the bottom. I think it looks great! I put on the vest to see how it fit and I think it will be perfect. I chose to make it in a medium figuring that I will be wearing it over shirts and need a little extra room for the bulk. When I put it on, I noticed it is definitely wide enough for me. I might have been able to get away with a small, but that is alright, it still looks good.     The yarn feels so nice and I can tell the vest will be warm - great for the fall. Next up I need to pick up the stitches around the neck and knit an edge of ribbing. The ribbing is to be about 6 in. long and it gets folded inward and tacked down to give the vest a nice collar. Knitting those back stitches with a provisional cast on will come in handy. It will look seamles
