With clear instructions and colour-coded charts, this pattern is great for anyone who is new to knitting lace. The Josephine Vest is an excellent introductory project for knitters who want to develop their skills and create something beautiful and practical.


The Josephine Vest is made from hand-dyed fingering weight suri alpaca yarn from Wool and Works, which ensures a soft, luxurious feel against the skin.
