Lancero Vest is a zip front vest worked in textured stitch patterns of diagonal lines and broken rib. It is worked in a worsted weight yarn in one piece from the bottom up. The stitch patterns are easy to work; the pattern rows become intuitive after a few rows, and all the wrong side rows are purled. Pattern includes full instructions for installing the zipper. Vest is modeled with 1" negative ease in the chest.
