I love using heavier weight yarn for lace work, something about the structure + open and airy drape this combo creates really makes for an all season sweater….perfect for layering over a thermal long sleeve tee in the Fall or Winter, or over a bathing suit or tank top in for a beach bonfire!

Notes
This sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up. The “feather” section of the motif is the lace, while the “fan” is the solid section, and will be referred to as such in the pattern. Short rows are worked seven times in this sweater, the first at the bottom just after the ribbing, under the sections of the motif that will become each “feather”, then at the top of the sweater again above each “fan” portion of the motif. This is done to create a straight edge on either end (top and bottom) of this particular lace motif. Short rows are worked a third time to shape the shoulders, on the back before the back neck stitches are bound off. Another set of short rows are worked to shape the front shoulders simultaneously with the front neck shaping. The shoulders are seamed using the three needle bind off technique, then the sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole opening and knit in the round to the cuff. The sixth set of short rows are worked over each “fan” section before smaller needles are used to knit the ribbing on the cuffs. The final set of short rows are worked across the back of the collar, after stitches are picked up around the neck opening to create a slightly taller collar in the back of the sweater.
