The design uses the contiguous method of shaping set-in
sleeves developed by Suzie M.
This sweater has a special construction. You are going to do a provisional cast on and knit the half of the sweater: that means half back, a shoulder and half front that you will knit twice. The neckline is made of lace with an I-cord so that you do not have to pick up sts to finish. Once you have got correct length of neckline, you will join to knit in round. Then you will separate the body and sleeves and knit the body in round until the end. You will knit a band of lace on the front that keeps going up. Because the sweater is reversible, you can choose to
wear this lace on the front or in the back. The sweater ends
with a lace band all around and an I-cord finish.
The sleeves are knit in the round at the end. They also include
lace, for the sleeve opposite the lace band from the front, you
will start to insert it higher than the other, this lace is on the
back side of the sleeves in opposition to the one of the body.
The shoulders are closed with 3 needles bind off method.
Happy knitting! Have fun!
