Fronts are joined to back at underarm and then the body of vest is worked in rows to hip length, 2 points are worked with decreases off the bottom of fronts. Finished fabric is very stretchy.

2. Instructions are written for size S with changes for M/L and XL/2X given in brackets or noted in separate lines. Left and Right directions are written assuming crocheter is working with hook in right hand with stitches moving from right to left.
