It is amazing what you can do with a simple rectangle. In this book alone, I’ve made two ponchos from a rectangle in two different ways. Now, with the addition of armholes, a rectangle becomes an open front vest. Iguazu Falls starts with an intricate pattern at the bottom and then continues with an open mesh up the sides. Armholes are placed,
and the back and fronts are worked separately for a bit. When the back and fronts are brought back together, lace worked across the top forms a draped collar and cascading fronts to finish your flowing garment.

Yarn Color: Wine
Notions: Waste yarn, tapestry needle

Due to the size and complexity of the charts, this pattern does not include written instructions for the lace.
