Be So Fine Yarn Knit Lace Vest FREE Pattern

Be So Fine Yarn Knit Lace Vest FREE Pattern

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!)

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
 Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.


xoxo, Kristin
