Be So Fine Yarn Knit Lace Vest FREE Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
This is one of those pieces that you can slip on over just about anything. The nature of the bamboo fiber make this accessory so incredibly drapey and with a lustrous sheen like silk. The yarn is hand dyed in gorgeous, saturated colors. Be So Fine Yarn is shown in colorway Blue Danube in this vest.
It is knit side to side in a relatively simple lace stitch pattern (knit every wrong side row!) and the armholes are added seamlessly with a little cast on and bind off in the pattern (think super large buttonholes!)
