Beech Leaf Vest – pdf

US $11.00

pattern by Fiddlesticks Knitting

This pretty vest features the classic beech leaf lace design. Lace panels frame the front openings of the vest up to the shoulders, with three lace panels at the back to wow them when you walk away!

Vest is worked from the bottom up. All shaping takes place in the stocking stitch areas, meaning there are no awkward calculations in lace. Finally, a simple yet decorative crocheted edge is worked (photographic instructions are provided) and buttons are sewn on. Sample shown in Size 1 (34 inches).
