This sweater is not only sweet and pink, it’s also very stringently designed according to the motto ‘form follows function’. The eyelets aren’t embellishment, they’re functional; they increase the body to a gentle A-line shape.
And then the sleeves and hem are, not so stringently, embellished with those same eyelets…..:-)
It’s knit in the round, bottom-up, with set-in sleeves that are knit separately to ensure perfect fit and stability. It’s bordered with garter, including the picked-up and knit neckband.
