Water Lilies is a shorter cropped yoke-necked design worked from the bottom up. With a regular rib on the lower edge, it is traditional in style but with a modern twist. The sleeves are worked separately in the rnd, then joined to work the yoke. The feminine lacy yoke has the stylish effect of increasingly smaller water lilies drifting up to a simple 2-ridge garter neckline. A single repeat of the small leaf pattern and simple garter edge is repeated around the lower edge of each sleeve. Short rows are worked at the bottom of the yoke and back of the neck for a more comfortable fit.
