Enjoy this lovely lace jacket or wrap that is based on a vintage style garment, and updated with a modern relaxed fit and easy knitting construction.
This clever wrap begins simply as a large tube -- the magic happens in the unique method of binding off to create a semi-fitted short jacket with a rounded hemline.
The result is similar to a bolero, except with a more feminine look, a softer shape, and short sleeves.
To choose size, hold your arms closely at your sides and measure around at chest level. Multiply this number by 2.
