Pattern Description:

Mirabor is constructed in one piece from the bottom up with sleeves knit in the round and joined to the raglan yoke. A modified version of Porcupine Lace embellishes the body and sleeve hems; a bit of Feather and Fan adds a pretty effect around the neckline. Ribbing serves to define the shaped waist. Though most of the sweater is knit in Stockinette stitch, the shaping, lace, and fun techniques like an i-cord bind off will keep you on your toes. Equal parts comfy and chic, you can easily dress Mirabor up or down to suit any occasion.
