This A-line sweater is knit from the bottom up in stockinette stitch to the bodice, where lace is added with increases for cap sleeves. There is minimal finishing - joining at shoulders and side seams. No picking up of stitches is required! Sea Glass has written instructions throughout, with the option of charts for the lace. (Sea glass is the wonderful, collectible bits of glass that are tumbled smooth in the ocean's surf. One of the most desired colors is a beautiful teal blue.)
