This amazing fashionable sweater is knit in a combination of different lace patterns and is perfect for transitioning into spring. The top-down construction is quickly knitted up, although you may have to pay some attention at first to the different stitches…
The sweater skims the body, rather than clings, for ease of movement. The deep neckline and lace pattern make the sweater breathable. Inspired by great fashion icons, you can look fabulous in this. The hem is rounded, so the front is shorter than the back in today’s high/low trend…Be sure to pick yarn with some drape to ensure your sweater is as comfortable and stylish as this one!

Skill level: Advanced(both interesting construction and several complex lace patterns)
