Nordic Trail

Nordic trail is a woman’s seamless vest, worked from the bottom-up using bulky-weight yarn and featuring easy lace panels.
This pattern is very detailed and would be perfect for a beginner or advanced beginner knitter who is relatively new to lace work and prefers instructions to be written out in detail (although more advanced knitters will enjoy it as well!). All of the armhole shaping instructions are broken out by size to make pattern reading even clearer.

Pattern Cost: $6.00
