Knit in sportweight wool, Pomegranate features a wide lace panel on front and back and a crisp twisted ribbing on the sleeves and neckband. It is designed to be worn with 2-3 inches of positive ease.

Because it is knit in the round from the bottom to the armholes, the only seams are at the shoulders. The set-in sleeves are knit in the round from the top down, and the sleeve caps are shaped with short rows.

If you prefer a more casual look with a relaxed fit and simpler details, check out Pomegranate’s cousin, Pom2.

Level of difficulty: Advanced beginner/Intermediate. Experience with working lace, reading charts and working in the round is helpful.

Techniques include working in the round on circulars and dpns, working twisted and wrapped stitches, and working short rows.

This is my second sample of this design. The first version, knit in Classic Elite Soft Linen, was knit flat in pieces and seamed. I changed the construction substantially for the final version. The final version (and the pattern) is knit in the round with set-in sleeves shaped by short rows. I also altered the body and sleeve ribbing for the final design.

I took the photos at Mount Pollux in Amherst, Massachusetts, and the model was my sister Jackie, claredeloony here on Ravelry.
