work 2 sts Tubular Knitting and...
The directions say, "beginning at right edge of center front, work 2 sts Tubular Knitting and 7 sts 1/1 Ribbing for Front Band."I just can't seem to find any instructions on how to do this "Tubular Knitting." I have knit this vest pattern before but ignored these instructions and instead just did seed stitch for the 9 st border of this vest. It worked fine but "curious minds want to know!" Now I want to make another and want to do the tubular knitting. What is it? The pattern is at least 10 years old and probably out of print. I don't even know the source of the pattern. When I "googled" this term, all I got was knitting on circular needles. Any one have a clue?

Is it possibly referring to a tubular cast-on?

Can you post the relevant lines from the pattern?

That's a great suggestion, however, I think it means something else as the pattern reads "BACK: "Cast on 102 sts and work 2 rows Garter St, then work as follows: beginning at right edge (center Front) work 2 sts Tubular Knitting and 7 sts 1/1 Ribbing for Front Band; 47 sts Pattern St, ending right side rows on 13th st and beg. alternate rows on same st......... Quite a puzzle!

It might look something like an icord but why not just say that instead of the reference to "Tubular sts"! Thanks!

What would 2 stitches of i-cord be at the beginning of the row? Is it at the beginning of every row on the opening side of the vest? Could it be some kind of applied i-cord? Does the vest look like it has that? If it is a real old pattern they could have different terms for things and not tell you how to do it because everybody knows. 'scratching head'. Hummm
