Feminine styling meets southwest flair…here is a vest that brings out the best of both. The Arrow Lace pattern brings to mind images of the southwest, and the crescent shaped hem gives this vest a silhouette that is distinctly feminine.

Knit from the deep lace hem border to the underarms in one piece, divided at the armholes to work the fronts & back separately. The pattern is written with a chart for the Arrow Lace.
