This design has been created in collaboration with Julie Asselin.

Gentle is a loose-fitting short pullover with lace on the bottom. Wear it with your favorite higher waist jeans or a skirt. This feminine sweater is worked seamlessly from the top-down. It incorporates short rows to shape the scoop neckline. Sleeves are picked up and knit in the round to the cuffs. The pattern calls for fingering weight yarn and the sample is knitted with the single-ply merino and silk blend - Leizu Fingering Simple by Julie Asselin in the Coquette colorway. Choose a delicate speckled or a solid color to enhance the beauty of the lace pattern which is surprisingly easy to knit!
The pattern has written and charted instructions.
