“Erica Patberg adapts the box pleat for handknitting, decreasing each pleat to a single point. She says, ‘This technique makes for a more flattering fit, since there is no extra bulk added where the pleats come together.’ A lace Shetland motif gives the project its name…”

Designer includes notes for customizing this pattern to include additional side pleats.
