Vest is knit in one piece with shoulders seamed at finish. A beaded front angles down to a long pointed back. Sizing is accomplished through the repeated stitches to the side of the lace panels. This pattern has 12 charts and uses short rows for shaping.

While not for the faint of heart, this vest is an heirloom quality piece, sure to be noticed wherever you wear it.

It is also a lot of fun to knit.
