Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Summer 2005: “A kimono sleeve creates a smooth shoulder line in this brief summer sweater, whose lace pattern reminds Kathleen Power Johnson of rippling water. The fronts and back are worked separately from the lower edges to the armhole, then stitches are cast on and worked for the sleeves. Ribbed front ties allow for an adjustable fit; work longer ties for a wraparound version of the sweater.”
Finished Sizes: 35½ (40, 47½)” (90 101.5, 120.5 cm) bust circumference, tied.
Yarn: Tahki New Tweed (70% merino, 15% silk, 11% cotton, 4% viscose; 103 yd 95 m/50 g): #018 blue, 5 (6, 8) balls.
Needles: Size 9 (5.5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions: Removable markers or safety pins; stitch holders; tapestry needle.
Note: If there are not enough stitches as a result of shaping to work a yarnover or decrease with its companion decrease or yarnover, work the stitches in stockinette stitch until there are enough stitches to resume working in pattern.
