Front panels of eyelet rib grow with slight variation from the bottom trim to the scoop neck of this romantic vest. to tuck one or two full or faux pockets on either side as you knit or when you’re finishing. An eyelet lace panel gives interest to the lower back and delicate tendrils of eyelets appear again in a back neck eyelet panel. Clear instructions and the magic of double knitting will help you create a back band that’s stockinette on the inside and ribbed on the outside for style, comfort, and stability. Double-sided neck and front bands give structure to the delicate lace. Finish with snaps or hooks and eyes to allow the vertical lines to continue without interruption, giving the final polish to your Agate Vest.
