What happened was, I was on my usual trawl through the charity shops of London, looking for knitwear I could unravel and knit into something else, when I spotted a dark purple-y sweater that was a bit tired, but that I was sure I could breathe new life into. Having seen a few cap-sleeved sweaters out there recently, that’s what immediately sprang to mind. I thought a smaller, more defined lace pattern than what the original sweater had would also work.

So, I borrowed the lace stitch from the ever-popular February Lady Sweater, which, in turn, had borrowed from Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Sweater on Two Needles.
