Posy is a quintessence of romanticism and femininity. The most important thing in this project is a detailed and sophisticated lace on the top and the bottom, which creates slight waves. Cropped length highlights your waist and, together with deep V-neck, matches perfectly with a dress. Choose your beloved colour and create something extraordinary for yourself!

Posy is a cropped sweater worked top-down, with a deep V-neck and lots of lace. I designed it to match dresses and skirts perfectly, but if you would like to wear it with your favourite trousers you can easily change the body length!

You can choose between three options: pullover with buttons, cardigan with buttons or just open front sweater. You will also find easy instructions in the pattern, which help you modify body or sleeves length and change number of buttons without complicated calculations. Inspire yourself by looking at testing versions and choose the perfect option for you!

Most of instructions in this pattern are depicted with charts. For your convenience, each size has its own file, with instructions only for the given size. You won’t have to search for instructions on complicated charts nor print many irrelevant information! Just pick your size and knit without distractions!

“Posy” has been created in collaboration with Positive Ease.
