Errata: See correction here. The fair isle chart as printed in the pattern booklet is incorrect. The chart as shown is a 28 stitch repeat. The correct pattern repeat is a 26 stitch repeat that fits beautifully with the 13 stitch repeat of the lace pattern on the lower body of the vest.
Corrected Chart can be found through link above and in photo section.
