From Lace Style:


Veronik Avery took inspiration from the classic Shetland shawl for this little charcoal verst. She combined two lace patterns: one typically used to creat the shawl's outer edge for the lower part of the vest, and one typically used in the shawl's interios area for the bodice.


Note: Yardage above takes into account the two balls of accent colors. Also, 3 swatches are needed.
