Thanks to chau7!!

This pullover is knit from the top down seamlessly. It starts with provisional cast on, working the stitches back and forth, and then stitches are cast on and joined to the yoke for working in the round. You can use short rows if you like. I like how the neckline looks, it is a little wider than I normally design, and has gentle round curve with I-cord BO, which gives a soft feminine touch.

The eye catching laces on the front and the sleeves are easy and fun to knit.

The pattern is easily modified/adjusted. Longer body, shorter sleeves(one of the testers made hers with lovely short sleeves), with or without waist shape, the lace on both front and back, a couple of lace repeat only at upper front, a couple of laces at forearms instead of all the way from the shoulder to the cuff,etc.

The instructions are both written and fully charted.

This is the worsted weight version of Rosetta with a little different details.

This pullover is designed to be worn with 1-2” positive ease.
