Fiddlesticks Knitting Patterns and Yarns
Redesigned for Silk Sensation, the Venus Vest is a graceful garment
with lace stripes running vertically on the body, flattering for any
woman. The lace changes above the bustline to add extra interest, and
the entire garment flows softly over the body.
The vest is worked by knitting the lower body from side to side without seams. Then stitches are picked up across the back and for each front bodice and worked up to the shoulders. Shoulder seams are joined and armhole edges are added. A few suggestions are given for front closures.
NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting Patterns use charts.
