This pattern can be found in issue 8 of Laine Magazine.

Georgie is knitted top down and has a slouchy fit that feels instantly comfy. The sweater features dropped shoulders and a rhythmic open lace. The sweeping neckline and soft, gently-shaped stockinette stitch sleeves are flattering and easy to wear. A faux side seam gives a special finish to the body and slides effortlessly into a ribbed hem. This pattern is perfect as a beginner / easy-knit sweater. Georgie is fun to wear, simple to knit and great to work on over endless cups of tea with friends.
