PATTERN DETAILS

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.

Jill Wolcott Knits
I am a fashion designer who designs hand knits. I love hand knits because we create both the fabric and the shape. My designs reflect my intense interest in fashion, with a keen eye to design and technique. Jill Wolcott Knits® patterns are very complete--I strive to create a complete and clear guide to a completed project and leave little room for interpretation. When a pattern challenges you to conquer a new technique, the directions and support are there to give you a great result (I've given it lots of thought and coached many knitters to new skill heights). Your reward will be the skill that you take forward in your knitting. My love is knitting, not sewing, so I design so that as much as possible is done on the knitting needles with sewing only as absolutely necessary. This isn't necessarily a shortcut, but I think it works really well for those who don't love the finishing process. I have an extensive online techniques library to help you master techniques I use, and anything specific to a pattern is included.
