This jacket is an easy introduction to lace knitting because it requires minimal shaping.
This easy, yet dramatic look of the diamond pattern is complimented with clean lines of 3x2 rib pattern at the collar. The diamond pattern shows beautifully in Lhasa Wilderness and will keep you interested from start to finish. You will be awarded with a garment suitable for multiple use and wear: It can be dressed up with with pair of slacks for work or dressed down with jeans for a weekend stroll.
You can omit the ribbon and use a belt for closure for yet another look.
