Tunic-length pullover combining different lace patterns with a decorative rib, balanced with stockinette stitch. Asymmetrical hem and neckline. Lower lace panels and sleeve cuffs knitted separately then sewn in place.

Interweave Online Store description:
A diagonal rhythm is evident in the hemlines, asymmetrical V-neck, and stitch texture, and provides adventure in knitting. The lower lace panels and sleeve cuffs are knitted separately, then sewn in place. Stitches for the long sleeves are picked up and knitted downward from the shoulders. Knitted with wet-spun linen yarn, this tunic offers exquisite drape as well as sheen when pressed and a casual matte appearance when left unpressed.
