Pull Pearl over your jeans and voila! you’ve got relaxed elegance.

Pearl is a pretty sweater that’s going to make you feel gorgeous and feminine, whether you’re curled up with a book or heading out for coffee.

The A-line body and three-quarter length sleeves are flattering and easy to wear, and the simple lace panel and i-cord neck-line give a really special finish.

Knitted seamlessly from the top, you’ll enjoy soothing, relaxing knitting all the way to the hem.

The lace is a simple, intuitive repeat perfect for knitting and chatting and is included in written and charted form.

Sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeve caps shaped with short rows.
