Pattern Description:

Rays of Gold is a modern take on the vest garment. Use a few buttons and make this into a cardigan, or button it up all the way to the hemline to have a beautiful modern girly vest.

Rays of Gold is a completely seamless design, worked top down with a contiguous set-in sleeves technique (developed by Susie Myers) that allows for shoulder shaping without the use of a single short row.
Rays of Gold features a beautiful Open Star Stitch lace, making the garment light and airy, perfect for any occasion.
