Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “Subtle details in this basically simple sweater flatter the wearer and help her to look-and feel-especially poised and feminine. The very soft, lace-weight mohair creates a comfortable, barely-there fabric that seems to float on the body; its halo adds a bit of romance. The deep ribbing that extends from the bottom border about halfway up the body is slimming while the V-neck is alluring. And the extra-long sleeves with optional thumb slits create a graceful line from the shoulder.”
