Pattern notes:
This elegant A-line sweater is knit in the round from the top down. The modified raglan yoke is worked in two colours. A simple lace pattern is worked on the front of the sweater yoke. The body and ¾ length sleeves are knit in stockinette stitch, in one colour, in the round; both are finished with twisted ribbing.

It’s really important to use an invisible short row method for this sweater. Instructions are given for German Short rows / the ‘Double Stitch’ method in the pattern.
