Lace, cables, and reverse stockinette make the most out of beautiful yarn with this entertaining knit. Henriette is knit from the bottom up and is a classic raglan style. First the lower body is knit, stitches are bound off for the underarm, and then the body is put aside. Next, the sleeves are knit. The body and sleeves are joined together when the raglan yoke is knit leaving only two small seams at the underarms. Stitches are picked up from the front edge to knit the button band. The sweater fits best with 1-3 inches of negative ease.
The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the cable and lace panels.
