There’s a KAL for this sweater just started here! Go join it if you like the company, the encouragement and the help…:-)

This amazing fashionable sweater is knit in a combination of different lace and cable patterns and is perfect for transitioning into spring. The top-down construction is quickly knitted up, although you may have to pay some attention at first to the different stitches…
The sweater has narrow sleeves but the body skims rather than clings for ease of movement. The deep neckline and lace pattern make sure the sweater doesn’t get too hot. Inspired by great fashion icons, you can look fabulous in this.
The hem is rounded, so the front is shorter than the back. Be sure to pick yarn with some drape to ensure your sweater is as comfortable and stylish as this one!
