I am loving workimg with this pattern, making it for a friend. My question is, the fronts have borders, but the back seems to just end at the st st cast off. Does this not require a border like the fronts? Please let me know. Thanks so much for such a lovely vest.

Hi Adele, I have not worked this pattern personally, but it looks to me like there should be a 5-row garter stitch border at the neckline to mirror the fronts and the hem of the back. Have you already worked the front borders? If it were me—and I had a long enough circular needle—after I seamed all the pieces together, I would pick up the stitches up one side of the front, across the neck, and then back down the other side of the front so that you have the garter border going all the way around—from the pictures, it looks like that’s what the designer did. Otherwise, if you haven’t finished the back, you could also knit 5 rows of garter stitch at the very end when you’re making the back.
If neither of these answers helps and you’re on Ravelry, I would suggest reaching out to the designer directly: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chevron-vest-3
But I hope that helps!
