I had designed a very feminine pullover with a wide, deep scoop neck, and I wanted an easy openwork pattern that would lend itself well to the design. I think this little bit of eyelet is exactly what this sweater needs to make it truly stunning. The eyelet carries through the Garter stitch trim at the waist and bell sleeves. I love how this piece turned out
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 5.5-5.75 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
22 sts and 31 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Lace Rib
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
