Ria is a top-down seamless vest that features a simple garter stitch upper and a sweet eyelet lace body. The vest begins with the neckline and uses raglan shaping to achieve a square yoke and shoulder straps. After casting on stitches under the arm, the body of the vest is worked back and forth with the eyelet stitch detail and finishes with a garter stitch hem. Ria is closed only at the top with 3 tiny buttons but additional buttons can be added if desired.
