Delicate lace combines beautifully with a soft yarn, like the brushed alpaca and silk blend shown here.

You’ll fall in love with the easy-to-wear shape, flattering wide round neckline, and lace border. Plus, this sweater is worked seamlessly from the top-down for a quick and easy finish!

A thin Garter stitch neckline edge starts off the sweater in the round. Bands of leaf lace and lace eyelets alternate with more thin bands of Garter stitch as you work your way down the yoke and to the underarms. The stitches for the sleeves are then placed on hold as you join the front and back to continue down to the hem, which features a lovely larger leaf lace design. Finally, the gently tapered sleeves are worked down to the cuffs in the round.

All lace designs are both charted and written. Sweater is intended to be worn with 11 ½ - 14” of positive ease.

NOTE: The brushed nature of this yarn allows it to be knit at a larger gauge despite the thin appearance. Please keep this in mind if substituting a different yarn.
