    2021 Update! Lilac Trail has been completely revamped, including the addition of 4 more sizes and video tutorials. Use the Ravelry code included with purchase to see the latest pattern.

    "Lilac Trail is a great light layering vest for any season. Using DK-weight yarn, it’s completely seamless and worked from the bottom-up. It features a pretty lace pattern panel along the back (pattern includes link to video tutorial for this!) as well as eyelet panels along each front. The very detailed instructions are ideal for the beginner knitter (even if you have never done lace work before), and many of the instructions are divided out by size to make pattern reading even easier. So there are a lot of pages in the pattern but this is not due to the instruction difficulty – it’s just to accommodate these detailed instructions for 11 different sizes!" -Elizabeth Smith

    This pattern comes with a code to be used on Ravelry that allows you to download an electronic copy for free.
