Simple yet striking, Jenny King’s lacy crochet vest is worked on the bias, producing a bold chevron in the green and gray striations of Akari colorway #4. The piece is started at the center lower back and crocheted out to the armholes in a multiplying shell pattern. After the back piece is complete, the open fronts are each worked separately. A crocheted edging is worked into the outer edges. The cropped, flowing silhouette pairs beautifully with floral maxi dresses. For a casual look, pair it with a bohemian-style tunic and jeans.
