This is a long sleeve, fitted, short sweater. It makes a nice, light-weight sweater over summery tops. Features include lace panels on the front, back, and sleeves against a stockinette background. It is finished with a knit band up the front and around the neck. The pattern includes a schematic, charts and written instructions for the lace patterns, and instructions for 3 sizes. If you use Fixation, or other elastic yarn, the yardage may be slightly less than if you use Bamboo, or a wool. The small size took 7 balls (700 yds) of Fixation but 4 balls (800 yds) of Bamboo.

I started knitting as a child. Over the years I used a lot of patterns written by others. At some point I decided to experiment and create things from my own designs. A few years ago I started writing up my patterns for others to use. I hope you enjoy my efforts.
