This pattern is suitable for those with some lace experience, or beginner lace knitters with a good resource book!
Featuring deep garter stitch edges, the front and back pieces are knit separately and then joined by a saddle extension worked from the top of the sleeves. Buttonbands are already in place as they have been worked as part of the lace charts, and stitches will be picked up for the collar.
To swatch the lace pattern, use 26 stitches from the outlined repeat section from the Back Chart for size 30-1/2” / 77.5cm (discard one stitch from each end of the 28 stitch repeat) and add a few plain border stitches on each side.
