Pattern Description:

The woolen equivalent of a warm, fuzzy snowflake, this versatile pullover is worked up in Shalimar Yarns' Haven, an irresistibly lofty merino/silk blend. The pattern uses a combination of cables and lace to create an overall pattern that is complex in texture, yet surprisingly easy to work.

The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner lace and cable knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted, and a detailed schematic is included. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.

The body is worked circularly from the bottom up to the armholes, and then divided into front and back pieces, which are worked flat separately. The shoulders are joined, and stitches are picked up around the neckline to work the collar circularly. The sleeves are worked flat separately, and then set into the body. Finally, the sides and sleeves are seamed.
