Got a question? Feel free to post it in the Girl on Fire A-Long thread.

Worked seamlessly from the Top-Down and almost entirely in the round, the set-in sleeves of the pullover are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker (a photo tutorial is included in the pattern). A stunning cable-n-lace panel adds beauty and drama to the square neckline and fitted silhouette.

Shaping is accomplished via princess darts to allow for maximum flexibility for customizing the shaping. The garment is intended to be worn with anywhere from -1” to +2” of ease at the bust, so choose a size that is closest to your bust measurement. The pattern also includes a “Some Thoughts About Fit” section for more information on knitting to suit your fit preferences as well a tutorial on horizontal bust darts (in a separate file) for those wishing to add them.

The cable-n-lace panel is charted only (in a separate pdf from the pattern instructions), so be comfortable with reading charts before taking on this project. It is an intermediate knit.
