This sweater is knit from the top down with fingering weight yarn making it lightweight and elegant. Striking lace down the center of the back gives it a unique look, while waist shaping and an open feminine neckline make it very flattering. This sweater will quickly become a favorite in your wardrobe.

My family is from Greece and I named this sweater after my sweet Yiayia who also loved the fiber arts.

Pattern is for personal use only.
