This slim-fitting pullover is a wonderful layering piece for Fall. The Japanese-inspired lace leaf panel decorates the garment’s center front and a bold lace column runs down the center of each sleeve; deep 2×2 rib is worked at the base of the body and sleeves. The yoke is shaped with full-fashioned double-decreases, giving the sweater a professional, tailored finish.
