Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “Shirley Paden is an expert at designing allover lace garments. In this elegant, form-fitting pullover, she capitalizes on the stretchability of openwork patterns. The zigzag lace is visually slimming and produces graceful curves along the cast-on edges. A high neck (fastened with tiny buttons at the back), tapered waist, and bell sleeves add contemporary appeal to a sophisticated look.”
