From Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 1993:
“Innovative details with nothing neutral about their appeal. Julia Paterson’s tunic with lace insets uses rayon for openwork stitched blocks to create a matte and shiny effect.”

Primary gauge: 20 st and 30 rows to 4”/10cm in stockinette using Cotton Classic.
Additional gauge given: 11 st and 16 rows to 2.25”/6cm in lace pat #1 using Lambada.

Ravelry lists Cotton Classic as a dk-weight yarn, but worsted weight is perhaps more accurate, and more appropriate for this pattern.
