Posy 4ply is part of a series of knits designed to coordinate with the popular Bloom dress and showcase the gorgeous WOOLganics yarns. It features the same diamond lace through the body and the yoke as on the dress’s body and hemline.

Construction:
Posy is knit top-down and seamlessly, beginning with a circular yoke. The body is worked flat and the sleeves in the round with the diamond lace positioned symmetrically across the fronts and the back. The edging is worked as you go to make for minimal finishing.

Yoke lace has both chart and written instructions.
Body lace has chart and a cheat sheet to guide you through the lace placement for those daunted by charts.

An 8ply version of this pattern is also available.
