The Pine Tree pattern is a beginner friendly lace pattern, with only in- and decreases every second round/row (knit rows). The body of the two sizes are worked with 14 (16) repeats respectively. Further adjustments in circumference can be made by changing the gauge slightly up or down.
Charts are included in the pattern with directions for pattern placement and decreases at the V-neck.
The Pine Tree Sweater with a V-neck is worked in the round bottom-up. At the yoke, the sweater is divided into front pieces and the back with stitches bound off at the underarm for the armhole. At the yoke the back and two front pieces are worked back and forth separately in pattern. The sleeves are worked in the round bottom-up.
The shoulder seams are knitted together, and the sleeves are sewn in. At the end stitches are picked along the neckline for a ribbed V-neck.
