- Size 5 (3.75 mm) knitting needles
- A tapestry needle for weaving in ends
- A pair of scissors

Start by casting on 64 stitches. Then, knit 4 rows in garter stitch (knit every stitch). This will form the base of the vest
.Next, you'll start working on the body of the vest. Knit 8 stitches, place a stitch marker, knit 48 stitches in the ring stone stitch pattern, place a stitch marker, and then knit the last 8 stitches. This will help you keep track of where the front and back of the vest will be.
The ring stone stitch pattern
is worked as follows:Row 1:
Knit every stitch.Row 2:
*Knit 1, purl 1; repeat from * to the end of the row.Row 3:
Knit every stitch.Row 4:
Purl every stitch.Repeat these 4 rows for the ring stone stitch pattern.
For the next row, knit to the first marker, then slip the marker, knit 2 stitches together, knit to the next marker, slip the marker, knit 2 stitches together, and then knit to the end of the row.Repeat this decrease row every other row, until you have 32 stitches remaining on your needle. This will create the waist shaping for the vest.Once you have reached the desired length for the body of the vest, it's time to work on the neckline. Knit to the first marker, slip the marker, and then place the next 24 stitches on a stitch holder.Knit to the end of the row.Next, you'll work on the shoulder shaping. Knit 2 stitches together, knit to the end of the row. Repeat this row until you have 8 stitches remaining on your needle.Repeat this process on the other side of the vest.

First, rejoin the shoulder seams using the tapestry needle and yarn.Next, pick up the 24 stitches from the stitch holder and knit them in the ring stone stitch pattern for 2-3 inches.
