This elegant women's pullover features a dramatic lace collar, matched with tapered lace inserts on the sleeves and body. A picot hemline adds a sweet and feminine edging. Knit in the round from the bottom up, this sweater requires minimal seaming and works up quickly. Skills required beyond knit and purl include: increasing (both yarn overs and m1) and decreasing, three needle bind off, and ability to read charted instructions.

I've been into DIY since I was little, but these days my main craft is knitting. My mother taught me the basics when I was eleven, and after several years of neglect I picked it up again at university. When I can squeeze it around my day job, I love to come up with knitting patterns, you can check out what I've got in development over on my blog, www.studiomarlowe.com
