The Gentle Waves Sweater is a bottom-up sweater knitted in the round. After making the body, you will knit the arms and join them to the body with a yoke. There is a simple yet elegant wave lace pattern along the sides of the sweater, which is repeated in the yoke. The hem, cuffs and neck are finished with garter stitch. It has a relaxed fit, with no further shaping past the bust.
