Pattern Details

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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting, purling, picking up stitches, yarnovers, increases, decreases GAUGE 22 sts and 31 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Lace Rib SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS XXS (26.25") to 6X (69.75")

Recommended with this pattern

  • 855-2005 yards DK weight yarn
  • Size 5 (3.75 mm) and size 3 (3.25 mm) circular and double-pointed needles

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.
