Like notes playing
across the staff of music, the subtle eyelets pattern of HeartStrings' Sweet Melody Vest
drift in and out of a flattering cascade of textured wavy columns. The slightly
fluted lower edge is a nice touch, too. This vest is knitted as one piece so
that sewn finishing is almost eliminated. You can leave the front opening
button-less or embellish with button loops and buttons as shown in the model for
a center-front closure.
