This pattern is available from for $7.99.

A lace vest or tee pullover worked in an unbelievably lightweight bulky yarn. The stitch creates an unbroken spiral, and a bias fabric that skims curves without clinging. Waist shaping can be blocked in, or allowed to form naturally as you wear it - no increasing or decreasing in the lace pattern.
The lace pattern continues unbroken up the neckline, creating a cap sleeve before it is attached (without seaming!) to the opposite side. This pullover is worked in the round to the armpits, where it divides to make each shoulder.
