It was love at first sight: beautiful lace panels, wonderful yarn BUT yoke is way to wide and at the end of the day I got a off-shoulder sweater. Think about crocheting some rows to narrow it.

I made more waist shaping and knit it a bit longer.


  • work 9 body increase rows every 7 rounds and get 234 stitches; so I have 6 stitches between each lace repetitions of the bottom band;
  • work 13 rows more for sleeves.

The pattern is well written and I will definitely knit other wonders from Jennifer Woods.

J’ai voulu faire ce pull dès que je l’ai vu, sous le charme des inserts en dentelle.
Tricot très plaisant, laine ronde et douce mais après blocage le col est vraiment TROP large. A la fin de la journée, il glisse des épaules.

Quelques modifications pour l’allonger et accentuer la taille.

- j’ai travaillé le rang d’augmentation du corps 9 fois tous les 7 rangs pour avoir 234 mailles : 6 mailles endroit (à la place de 4) entre les 2 panneaux de dentelle du bas;
- j’ai allongé les bras de 13 rangs après les diminutions.

Le modèle reste très bien écrit.
