PATTERN NOTES
Inspired by beautiful beech trees, this pullover is perfect for the transition from summer to autumn. It features gorgeous lace panels reminiscent of beech leaves along the sleeves. The body is knit in stockinette and features ribbing along the hem and sleeve cuffs. The sweater is finished off with an elegant square neckline.

The construction of this sweater is interesting and engaging. The sleeve panels are knit first, then the body stitches and sleeve stitches are picked up along the panel edge and worked from the top-down. The side and sleeves are then seamed before picking up stitches to work the neck edging and sleeve cuffs.
