Ayako's Vest is is a lace vest worked side-to-side with minimal shaping. The lace pattern is both written and charted, and a schematic is included. This is a pattern that I designed for Classic Elite’s Farmer’s Market pamphlet. This is my original pattern, and it varies from the version that Classic Elite published in several important respects: 1) There are 6 sizes, rather than 5. 2) For sizes 37” / 94 cm and above, actual (or close to actual) crossback measurements are used for the back width at the crossback. The classic elite version was edited to make this measurement significantly wider. 3) For all sizes, the chest circumference is slightly different - this should not be very significant but there is a difference. The projects shown in the Classic Elite version’s projects page on ravelry should be representative of the final piece for smaller sizes. Larger sizes will have a more fitted appearance when made following this pattern. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.

Because of the side-to-side construction, row gauge is very important to the fit of the vest.
