This pattern is in English.

Formation vest is worked top–down with increases from both the right and wrong side around the shoulder seam, creating a beautifully continuous course in the mock honeycomb pattern. The neckline is rounded with a bit of depth and finished like the armhole with a twisted ribbing folded double for extra nice finish. The vest is finished with twisted rib bellow, and a slit in both sides. The fit is short and fits well over a dress or a pair of high waist pants. You can easily extend the length of the work, if it fits your body and wardrobe better, but remember that in that case you need more yarn.
