Pattern Description from stitchdiva.com: “Feminine without being fussy, Giselle is a try-on-as-you-go, top-down raglan with no seaming required! For ultimate flexibility, the pattern instructions for this simple sweater offer four options to best fit your style and preferred technique. For style, choose a cropped or full-length version of the sweater. For technique, choose an all-knit version, or trim your sweater with simple crochet - a great way to incorporate crochet into your knitting!

Whichever version of Giselle you choose, you are guaranteed a classic garment that is universally flattering to the female form: a romantic top that fits you perfectly and that you will enjoy for years to come.”
