Pattern Description from MarnieMacLean.com: “This is a fairly advanced pattern requiring a lot of crochet as well as knit. Venus has a great light feeling and a lot of drape, but this pattern could be worked in other yarns as well. I think this design would be decadent in Luna, or delightful in Chai or Siam. It’s knit up as a deep v-neck, but ends up being a much shallower v-neck when the bottom is eased in with the lace. This may not be the only way to achieve the effect, but it’s the way I did it. I have very long arms (my knuckles drag on the ground when I walk) so I made the sleeves quite long, feel free to lob off a few inches before working the sleeve caps to adjust for your arm length.
I highly recommend you read through the entire pattern before starting, especially when moving to the front which asks you to follow 2 sets of directions at the same time.”
