Pattern Description:

Wavelette is a lovely layering piece with its lace front and delicate rolled hems. Fingering-weight yarn and a loose gauge make this light as air and quicker to knit than you might think.
Crest of the Wave (provided in both chart and written form), a variation on the classic Shetland Old Shale pattern, is easy to work and so gratifying with lacy bits and waves of double-strands of pearls (purls, really). This sweater is perfect for strolling on the beach or strutting out to dinner.
