very nice & not hard

I think maybe I will put frogs in the front, to close the vest. I don't know how to make buttonholes. :D

Closing idea for this vest

Frogs are decorative looped "asian" style knotted closures, sometimes seen on asian robes and coats.

I think another easy way besides making button holes is adding crochet chain loops for buttons sewn on opposite side to fit into.

Or a tie on the tope of the vest using braided or crochet chain loop.

or add a zipper - just sew in in. yes, this is possible if you ahve a sewing machine ;)
