No need for a necklace with this pullover.

Koru is relaxed boxy sweater with a beautiful lace pattern along the neckline. The sweater is worked seamlessly top-down. It has long sleeves with the lace repeated on top of the sleeves, a boxy shape with no waist shaping and the shoulders are shaped with short rows. The cropped hem has a slit so the front and back hem ribbing are worked separately. The lace has both charted and written instructions.
