Stitches for the armholes are then picked up from the body, which are knit in the round. The sides of the vest are then seamed from the bottom hem to the underarm. Stitches for the neckband are then picked up from the body, which is knit flat. Stitches for the pockets are then picked up from the body, which are also knit flat from the bottom-up.
