Locus Vest is a seamless design worked bottom-up to the armholes. The body is then divided for front and back to be finished separately. Beautiful lace panels run up the centre front and back of the body while the armholes and neckline are trimmed with simple stocking stitch for an impeccable finish.

The pattern is knitted in Malabrigo Silky Merino, a soft singles yarn which works with the lace stitches to stunning effect.


Intermediate - knit, purl, lace in the round and flat, knitting in the round and flat, simple decreases and increases, and finishing.
