Tiny Town Sweater Vest

Introduction: Tiny Town Sweater Vest

About: I am constantly knitting, crocheting, Tatting, and paper crafting. I am currently teaching myself how to macrame as well. Basically, if it's a hand craft I do it, or at the minimum, I have tried it!

I developed this little pint-sized joy because I just wanted to see if I can! It's definitely small enough for a pocket sized project.

I hope you have as much making it as I did creating it!

Step 3: Tiny Town Sweater Vest Finishing

Weave in all those pesky loose ends.

Seam on sides from Row 1 to Row 24. Seam shoulders together. (Use whichever seam you prefer. I used a simple whip stitch.)

Pick up stitches evenly around neck and arm holes to create an even finished edge. Weave in these ends when you're done seaming and the neck and arm edging.

Enjoy your Tiny Town Sweater Vest!!
