A lightweight, feminine vest in brilliant colours with a delicate fern lace pattern. It is designed in a way that you don’t have to decrease on the lace panels – they remain intact from the bottom to the top. Dark Forest is knitted in the round (up to the armholes) from the bottom up, without any seaming, even the shoulders are finished with 3-needle bind off.
