Nordic trail is a woman's seamless vest, worked from the bottom-up using bulky-weight yarn and featuring easy lace panels. This pattern is very detailed and would be perfect for a beginner or advanced beginner knitter who is relatively new to lace work and prefers instructions to be written out in detail (although more advanced knitters will enjoy it as well!). All of the armhole shaping instructions are broken out by size to make pattern reading even clearer.

I’m Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. Most of my patterns are seamless and many are knit from the top-down. They are written with the beginner knitter in mind, providing lots of detailed instructions. I provide pattern support for all my designs so feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions-I love to help and make sure my customers enjoy the knitting process (not to mention the finished piece!)
