Pattern Description:

Front panels of eyelet rib grow from the bottom trim to the scoop neck of this romantic vest. Eyelet lace gives interesting detail at the back waist panel and again at the back neck. Clear instructions and the magic of double knitting will help you create a back band. Double-sided neck and front bands give structure to the delicate lace. Choose full or faux pockets then finish with snaps or hooks and eyes to preserve the vertical lines, giving the final polish.
