Like most girls I know, I wear flip-flops before it’s warm enough and sweaters before it’s cold enough, because I’m always antsy for the next season to start, even though we’re not done with the current one. The Everett Henley is great for those not-quite-cold-enough-for-a-sweater-days if you layer it over a camisole, but it can easily take you into actual winter if you layer it over a button down and add some killer boots. The lace pattern is one of my all-time favorites, and top-down construction means that it’s totally seamless. The curved hem, applied i-cord bind-off, and three-quarter sleeves add structural interest and detail.

This is an advanced pattern.

Skills needed: Working from a chart, incorporating new stitches into lace, familiarity with top-down raglans, increases and decreases, keeping track of many markers, knitting in the round, knitting with dpns, i-cord bind off, sewing on buttons.

Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted, 100% Superwash Merino Wool; 110yds/50g: Copper, 10 (11, 13, 17, 18, 20, 23) skeins.

Yarn: Knits in Class Mohair Merino Worsted, 52% Mohair, 48% Merino; 225yds/100g: Mr Darcy, 5 (6, 7, 9, 9, 10, 12) skeins.

Needles: Size 7 (4.5 mm): 24” circular, and size 8 (5 mm): 30” circular for body of sweater and EITHER a long (40”+) circular, a 16” circular, or a set of 5 dpns for the sleeves. You will also need 2 Size 8 dpns for the applied i-cord bind-off. Adjust needle sizes if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
