ERRATA from SG versions: Place the back shaping markers the same as for the front.

Note: It’s up! I still need to shoot new pretty pics, and will be updating the pattern when they’re done, but the pattern itself is now available.

Zylphia only looks soft, sweet and demure. She pilots her own airship and smuggles opium in the hold.

This sweater is worked bottom up, in the round, with waist shaping and a modified yoked construction. The central lace panel consists of honeybee lace, faggoting and arrowhead lace – all vintage lace patterns.

The ¾ length sleeves feature a honeybee lace panel on the lower sleeve. Three rounds of Vikkel braid separate the upper and lower sleeves.

Thread a ribbon through the picot neckline to adjust the neck.

NOTE: Dropping the YOs from the previous row applies only to those YOs associated with the Honeybee stitch.

Special Construction Notes

This sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up. The sleeves are knit in the round cuff up and joined to the main body of the sweater. The remainder of the sweater is worked in one piece using yoked decreasing modified to work with the center lace panels.

Note that the marker placement for waist shaping on the front differs from that on the back.

Skills needed: Knitting in the round, lace. Grafting the stitches at the underarms. A sense of adventure and daring.

ERRATA from SG versions: Place the back shaping markers the same as for the front.
