Once upon a time, Eve strolled around a lovely garden with flowers and trees. The sun was shining and Eve decided to take a rest in the shadow under an old apple tree. Lying under the apple tree, Eve fell asleep. She was dreaming of a lovely sweater with a round lacy yoke and cropped sleeves that would look great with her favorite skirts and dresses, as well as with her beloved jeans and chinos.

All about Eve is worked seamlessly from the top down. It starts with an openwork yoke. Short rows are worked to raise the back. Body and sleeve increases are then worked along raglan lines. The cropped sleeves and the body hem are finished with the same pattern as the neck edge.
Directions for the lacy yoke are provided as a chart as well as written out in full.
