Oh wonderful wonderful wonderful!
For experienced knitters who want to play with their yarns and fibers and create a superbly glorious paean to Spring -- start your engines!
Brand-new from Jane Thornley, here is a glorious little vest worked side to side in lace ribbing and seed stitch featuring alternating colors of green braced by brown (or your choice of hues, of course) in dk or sport weight yarns worked on size 5mm/US8 needles.
The bottom edging is picked up and knit afterward in a leaf stem lace pattern. It's an easy wear suitable for dressing up or down and those roomy armholes and absence of buttons offer an added dash of chic comfort.
And Jane adds, "Consider this pattern as a guide only, designed to be a blank canvas on which you can experiment. (Sound risky...? Well, we can't nurture the mother of invention by chaining her inside the cradle!)"
Sounds like a great challenge to me.
We offer here a printed hard copy of the pattern. If you prefer a PDF file, Jane offers that on her website.
The pattern is nine pages of detailed data, designed to lead you through to an end product of beauty.
