The Lerwick Vest is a floaty, lacy layering piece featuring the time-honored Feather and Fan Stitch. The vest is made with an unusual construction method: first, knit a long rectangle from side to side to form the lower section of the vest. then pick up stitches across the center back to form the upper bodice. The piece de resistance is a gorgeous lace collar with an expanding lace motif.
