Worked mainly in the round, with a split lace hem at the bottom edges of body and 3/4 length sleeves, the focal points of this raglan-sleeved pullover (besides the lace edgings) are the Four Sisters lace pattern on the sleeves, and the twist stitch columns which help shape and define the waist. The worsted-weight yarn works up quickly on US size 8 needles. The specified yarn is a cotton blend, but for a cool weather/holiday version, one of the many wool/silk blends would also work beautifully: some possibilities are S. Charles Collezione Dynasty, Tahki Savoy, Cascade Venezia, or Plymouth Royal Silk Merino. The lace split hems of the body and sleeves are worked back and forth, then joined to work the remainder of body and sleeves (to the bottom of armholes) in the round. Directions are also given for working non-split lace hems, in the round. To taper the neckband slightly while continuing the lace pattern, you will change to a US size 7 and then a US size 6 needle.
