Update Feb 15:
I am happy to tell, the pattern has been featured in the newest issue of Knitsy (#17)!
Therefore, there is now an updated version available on my blog (same link as before, this means the old version no longer available) which includes sizes XS, S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X following the standard body measurements provided by Craft Yarn Council.
Enjoy! :)

This sweater is a lovely treat to knit for yourself to wear before and after the heat of the summer.

It is made in two main parts: the body part is worked in the round from the bottom up in stockinette stitch. This part gets split at the underarms. Here begins the arrowhead lace section, which is knit from the front up, flipped over and sewn back to the body in the back, using kitchener stitch.

The highlight of the Amors Arrow Sweater is its sweetheart neckline that is shaped through short rows and gives the whole sweater a very feminine look.

The pattern is written in English and includes instructions for sizes XS, S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X. There are written instructions which are accompanied by photos for the different steps.

The lace pattern is given in written instructions and as a chart.
