Featured exclusively on the Blog on January 23, this sweater is one of the bonus patterns from Kristeen Griffin-Grimes new book, French Girl Knits.

Watch the French Girl Knits Video Slideshow on (with some of Kristeen’s great photos from her knitting retreats in southern France)!

Kristeen originally designed 19 sweaters for her book--but there was only enough page space for 18 of them. In this case, all 19 sweaters were so lovely that we didn’t want to let any of them go--so we decided to offer Vienne, a top-down seamless pullover, for free on Knitting Daily. Vienne is constructed from the top down, with set in sleeves worked simultaneously with the upper bodice. Front and back v-neck lace edging is worked into the pattern as you go.
