from Tot Toppers
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Antilogy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • working in the round
  • following a lace pattern
  • picking up stitches

Pattern Description:

Living in a warmer climate encourages a knitter to be creative in choice of projects. I wanted this piece to be a bit of a paradox: simultaneously cozy and breathable. This lace repeat worked at a loose gauge in an alpaca yarn achieves just that. Use a cotton or bamboo blend at the same gauge for a lighter garment. The sweater is worked top-down in the round, all in one piece. The lace pattern is both written and charted. Shown in size S.
