This design uses alternating blocks of Stk st and Rev Stk stitch with simple lace sections added to create visual interest and keep the fabric light. It is also an easy way to add color underneath by layering this pullover over a shell in early spring or long sleeves in autumn and/or winter. Because I live in Florida, I opted to show mine as a 3/4 length sleeve. You can easily make this into a full-length sleeve, the instructions are included. My second version uses Quince & Co.’s Kestrel, a linen chain/ribbon-plied, aran weight yarn.
