A form fitting all-over lace sweater, featuring a flattering square neckline and with a choice of elbow length or short sleeves. The lace pattern is much simpler than it may look with no shaping required other than at armholes and sleeve heads. Designed to be worn with 4-6 inches of negative ease to really show the lace pattern off to good effect. Knitted flat in separate pieces.

Knitted in my own Excelana 4ply wool in the stunning autumnal shade of Damson Wine.

Now available as a single pattern as well as part of the Stitch in Time volume 1 collection.

Pattern completely rewritten and extended with both written and charted instructions included and additional sizes included.
