PATTERN DETAILS

Aster Vest is a lace vest with long fronts that come to a point and a shorter back. The back is worked from the center outwards in a large flower motif then continued straight for the upper back. The fronts are worked on the bias in a lace pattern and then worked straight from the chest up. A lace edge is knitted on after sewing the side seams. The armholes are finished with a band of garter stitch. The vest is worked in a bamboo/wool blend yarn that is very drapey and soft to create a fluid silhouette.
