This Vest is knitted in a circle from the bottom up, splits under the arms and from that point knitted back and forth.
The rib is double to give it a heavier and nicer finish. The lace pattern is a repeat of 6 stitches and 6 rows.

There is a link to a youtube video where I explain how to do the double rib and the lace pattern.

The Vest is in S-M-L - easy to add to length by either lengthening the rib or adding another pattern row.

width: 41-45-50
Length: 43-45-48

Yarns: Two colours of lace yarn - recommend 70% mohair and 30% silk. There are different companies with this kind of blend, but they often have different colours so it is good to search if you have a specific colour in mind.

You will need needles number 3,75mm and 5,00mm
about 33-40 grams of colour A (2 skeins of col. A if 25. gr. each) and 17-24 grams of colour B (1-2 skeins of col. B if 25 gr. each) - I personally would buy an extra skein of col B for L and then return if not needed.
