Pattern notes
This openwork jumper is worked in four shades, with 1x1ribbing at the hem, cuffs and neckline. The horseshoe lace chart is worked in the round to the underarms, back and forth for front and back, and in the round again for the sleeves. Sleeves are slightly set in, picked up, and worked downwards from the shoulders, reversing the colour / chart sequence to match the body. Where only one number is given this applies to all sizes.
