This light sweater is so easy to knit and finish that I managed to make mine throughout the excitement of Andy Murray’s Wimbledon final! The majority of the pattern is in stocking stitch, a great way to perhaps show off a beautiful yarn with a little texture; alternatively, in a neutral shade it is the perfect non-clashing cover up for your prettiest spring and summer florals. The lattice lace panels are inspired by tennis nets and straw hats and the simple dropped shoulder construction is flattering and fashionable. I’ve named it after Southfields – which, in confusing London fashion, is the underground station for Wimbledon.

Knits with positive ease, so knit the size up from your actual bust measurement.
