Je remercie libelbulle pour traduire le modèle en français. Die Anleitung ist in englisch, deutsch und französisch erhältlich. This pattern is available in English, German & French!

Poema is knit from the top down and features a pretty lace pattern on the sleeves. Even thought it looks like the lace pattern is knit with cables, it is not; it is only a simple combination of YO, knit, purl, K2tog & SSK stitches.
Instructions are included for ¾ length or for full-length sleeves.

The body is worked in stockinette stitch, with 0-1” ease, and side waist shaping. Because of its top-down construction, the body is easily adjusted to various body types.

As you knit this sweater, as with all of my patterns, if you have any questions (especially regarding adjusting the body fit), don’t hesitate to send me a message. Also, feel free to join my English speaking Group or my German speaking Group.
