How to knit vest pattern

I started with 84 stitch. I made 1 purl, 1 straight rib stitch along 2 rows, then I made 3 rows stockinette stitch. I created a buttonhole for the first stockinette stitch.

For Yoke, I knitted as it will be separeted the front side is 16, the arms are 11, and the back is 26 stitch . Increase places are 8 rows of knit. I then made 3 rows of stockinette stitches. In the meantime I continued to increased, I made 16 increments.

After the increase, I again made 3 rows of stockinette stitches. At the same time, I continued to open the other buttonhole 10 times. After 3 pieces, I reserve out the arms and went to the body part. I made a 6-stitch stocknitte stitch for the front parts. Then for pleated; I found the exact center of the stitchs on the front and back, and I stitch it. I did this every 6 in 1 rows. I increase it 1 of 6 rows from the left and right side of the single increase i made. I continued until i had 21 stitches.

I have increased the stitches in the reverse from front, front from reverse so that the reverse will be flat. I made 5 rows of stockinette stitch when my enhancements were 21 and finished the vest. Then I decorated it with rose  embroidery (Brazilian Embroidery) with a needle on it. It is already easy for those who will knit this vest. Goodbye
