Minerva vest is worked from the top down. The back is knit first and shaped with short rows for a more comfortable fit. Then, the front shoulders are picked up from the shoulder and worked top down as you shape the v-neck. Finally, front and back are joined together at the underarm and the body is knit seamlessly in the round to the hem.

 

It features a contrast rib on the hem, neck and shoulders. Both pockets have a two-layer shape for a steadier feel and are patched on at the end.
The model in the picture is 169 cm tall and wears a size 2.
