Pattern Description:

My Helen sweater is a shapely, lacy, v-neck pullover. Its Hexagon Fern lace - an easily mastered 18 stitch by 16 row repeat - is worked throughout and echoes the lines of its 1x1 rib trim and angled neckline. The bodice is slim fitting, extending mid-hip in length, and follows body curves. Narrow sleeves end just below the elbow - long short sleeves that feel ample. This versatile piece may be dressed up or down and layered, establishing it as one of my all-occasion, year-round favorites.
