This feminine seamless vest is worked from the neck down in one piece starting with the yoke. Two beautiful stitch patterns are used – one for the yoke, and one for the bodice with picot hem. Simple edgings finish off the neckline and armholes.

Pattern includes both charts and written instructions.
This vest with its open lace pattern allows for stretch and can thus accommodate a wide range of bust sizes. Choose a size closest to your bust measurement. If you are in between sizes, go for the smaller size; however, if you have wide shoulders, opt for the larger size instead. For instance, the S/M size shown, modeled with zero ease, can comfortably accommodate bust size up to 38”.
For better result, please use a yarn (eg. silk, rayon or bamboo blend) with good drape; otherwise you may have to work extra rows to lengthen the vest.
