Celtic Lattice Vest
From Folk Vests: "Inspired by designs in historic manuscripts, Celtic Lattice has the advantage of looking very complicated while being quite pleasant and rhythmical to knit… . Except for bottom border facing, vest is worked circularly up to the shoulders. Steeks are made for center front, armholes, and neck opening. Work in stockinette stitch using the two-color stranding technique."
