Amande is a piece that uses Stockinette and Garter Stitch in ways that create interesting lines and a unique shape. It is knit from the bottom up, mostly in one piece and the fronts of the vest are created by picking up stitches down the fronts and working short rows on either side. The pockets are created as the vest is knit, with the linings picked up and knit after the body of the vest is done.
