The Lace sleeves Sweater is a sweater with laces on the sleeves and is echoed in the bottom part of the sweater which gives it a romantic and feminine look. The smocking look-a-like stitch in the waist not only causes the sweater to cinch the waist but also adds an interesting detail in this sweater. This sweater can be worked in a light weight fiber (green sample is knit in 100% cotton Baby Georgia) or in DK weight yarn. Alternatively, a wooly yarn can make the perfect fall garment. No shaping in lace is required. All the shaping is done in the stockinette portions of the design. This sweater is knit in around, from top down, and in one piece, so there's no seaming.
32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44" Bust. For DK weight pattern it is better if you go down in size. Thus if your size is M, you can go down 1 size to S.

I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (35) »
