Worthy of Note
Lucille is a vintage inspired baby set designed for cuteness and function. The sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down; stitches are cast on at the neck, and eyelet increases are worked to shape the garter yoke.

After the yoke is worked, the remainder of the body and sleeves are worked in a lace pattern. Pay careful attention to the chart when dividing for the body and sleeves and working the sleeve stitches, as you will work a different chart for each sleeve.
