Lovely Lace Vest
Gorgeous lace patterned squares are beautiful in any shade of this soft bamboo crochet thread. You’ll love the way the metallic wrap adds a hint of glimmer to your vest. Since it is size 3, this vest can be completed more quickly than with the usual size 10. Wear it with or without the removable collar.
