Before you start knitting, gather the following materials:

Step 2: Cast On Stitches
Using one of the skewers, cast on 80 stitches using the long-tail cast on method. This will create the back of the vest.

Using the second skewer, create two front pieces that are identical to the back piece, but with a neckline cutout. To create the cutout, knit the first 35 stitches, bind off the next 10 stitches, and then knit the remaining 35 stitches.
