Maizie is a sweet, simple lightweight sweater designed to be knit in easy wearing linen. Maizie is worked seamlessly from the lacy yoke down and features a rolled edge with twisted ribbing. A wide picture neckline and 3/4 length sleeves complete this hip summer sweater.

Linen yarn is so crisp and cool in the hand and creates garments that are dry and comfortable to wear while providing excellent drape. The boho paisley-inspired lace motif is a pleasure to knit in linen. Its stiffness imparts a very rustic and natural quality to the openwork stitches yet creates superb drape through the fields of flat stockinette. And it gets softer each time it is laundered, taking on a brushed, suede-like quality with age. Style Maisie with everything from soft cotton skirts to shorts and jeans for an effortless summer look.
