This pattern uses both side-to-side and bottom-up constructions. The main body is worked side-to-side with a leaf edging worked as you go. Then stitches are picked up and a simple lace mesh pattern forms the yoke. Sleeve stitches are pick-up around armholes and worked top-down using short row shaping to create a set in sleeve with no seams. The front is finished by picking up and then immediately binding off stitches to create a narrow cord that creates just a little swing. The yoke mesh doubles as buttonholes for the 3 small buttons used at the top. This is a perfect transitional sweater and using superwash sock yarn makes it easy to care for! It will be your new favorite layering piece. Select your size based on the amount of ease you prefer.
