CROCHET: A classic 70s long line waistcoat or vest, in an unusual lace design of scalloped, or curved  arches bands. It looks intricate but with very little shaping and no fastenings this is quite easy to make once the set of rows to the pattern is familiar.

This could easily be made short, or even as cropped summer or wedding bolero. The design is just 5 repeats of the set rows; so just work the number of repeats for the length you need.

This stitch structure would also make a beautiful blanket/afghan. (If that concept is of interest, then WZ764 bedspread has a similar effect; worked in vertical strips which are joined, instead of these horizontal bands.)
