Lukrecja is a seamless, knitted from top down sweater, with lace panel at the front and the sleeves, with deep décolletage closed with tiny buttons, ended with elongated back of the sweater.

Pattern information

The construction of the sweater is based on the slightly modified Contiguous method by SusieM, where instead of shoulder seam the lace panel is being created already from the beginning of shoulder shaping.

Finished measurements:

Finished measurements of the garment: 75 (80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110) cm / 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44)“ bust circumference;
To fit sizes: 80 (85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110, 115) cm / 32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46)”
The garment is designed to fit tight in the bust and in the hips. Choosing the size that is exactly your bust circumference will give you the garment with 5cm / 2” of negative ease.
