A vest that can make you feel instantly more gorgeous? This vest does just that! It's highly sophisticated with many well thought out details.
Pattern is sized for XS thru 3XL.
This vest is worked from the bottom up in a pretty all-over lace pattern that is surprisingly simple to knit. Short rows are used to taper the front edges and allow them to hang at a seductive angle. Decreasing at the waistline creates a very flattering gathered effect, at which point the vest transitions into a nicely textured cable pattern in front and 2 x 2 ribbing in the back for a great fitted shape. Closures are omitted to allow this vest to be worn many ways. Add a gorgeous pin to fasten it at the waist or higher up.
Knit with 672 (768, 864, 960, 1056, 1248, 1344) yds of worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 15-19 sts and 16 rows per 4", using US size 8/5mm and 10/6mm needles. Approximate finished bust measurements: 29 1/2 (33 1/2, 37 3/4, 42, 45 1/2, 49 1/2, 53 3/4)" sized to fit XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X) when worn closed with a shawl pin. Design by SweaterBabe.com.
