OK, better to have a corrected pattern than not. First 4 rows at not just knit, front band ribbing is included. Pattern revision posted 5/11/16.

ERRATA: Row 1 instruction calls for s1-k1-psso. The chart shows s1-k2-psso. The chart is CORRECT. The written instruction should read: s1-k2-psso.

This pattern is being offered for free downloading until May 18, 2016, then it will sell for $6.00.

Because the sweater is lace except for the ribbed front band, it is stretchy so there is a lot of flexibility in sizing through blocking.

I highly recommend knitting a good-sized gauge that is washed and blocked, as lace notoriously looks smaller before it is washed and blocked.

Most DK weight cotton will also work well with this pattern. Hempathy drapes well.

A hook-and-eye can be added to the front if a closure is preferred.
