This lace knit reminds me of pie lattice! Chest panel is worked horizontally, so achieving a perfect gauge is less critical. Stitches for lace section are picked up and worked down, making length easily adjustable. Top is finished with delicate picot edging and even the straps include sweet detailing. Lace is both charted and fully written. Shown in size 18 months. Pattern recommended for knitters with some lace experience or the patience to learn!
