Genevieve, an elegant pullover vest with drop shoulders and small cap sleeves, is worked in a rich overall lace knitting and texture pattern inspired by Japanese stitches. The asymmetrical collar adds a stylish note.

Front and Back are knit separately with charts provided for shaping at the front neck. Sleeve caps are picked up and worked in the round, then the collar is worked back and forth, using larger needle sizes as you go to flare the collar. Our sample was knit in Size 1. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Advanced knitters.
