A top down sweater, knit mostly in the round, intended to give a fitted look with negative ease. (Although how you wear the sweater is up to you.) Slightly puffed sleeves and a turned hem are among the dressmaker details found in Laughing Miss Dashwood.

Recomended needle size US 5-7 (3.75-4.5mm)

Skill level-Intermediate. Stitches used are knit, purl and slip stitches.

To place the patterned band directly at the underbust, measure down your back rather than the front as instructed. If you prefer an empire waist look, measure down the front.

Please note that I have gotten the publication rights to this pattern back but am planning some updates to the shaping before I release it. I will do my best to have it ready as soon as possible.
