Pattern Description:

The Sammi sweater has a flowing shape, with the structure maintained by the ribbed sleeves and shoulder seams. The garment is designed to sit at waist length and is perfect worn over a strappy summer dress or a longer under top.

The garment is worked in the round in one piece to the underarms, then the front and back are worked separately.

Sized for almost everybody, the fit is oversized and comfortable. A great garment for the beginner lace knitter as there is no shaping, and perfect as a gift for a little girl as she will be able to wear it for a couple of years.
