From now until Inauguration Day, you can use coupon code “lovetrumpshate” for one free pattern of your choice from Sunflower Designs. All I ask in return is that you make a personal commitment to doing whatever you can to promote a more peaceful, inclusive society with justice for all, no matter how marginalized. Inspire me, people. Let me know I am not alone. #wewillrise #lovetrumpshate #ibelieveinabetterworld

Pattern also requires 1000 size 8 seed beads (optional)

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.
