do you have the pattern please? Or a link to it? Its beautiful
nanaofmany answered:
I'm sorry, it's my own pattern. It was a gift for my daughter. I measured my daughter first and then knitted test swatches until I liked the look. I started out with this top down raglan sweater knitting pattern. http://www.laurachau.com/free- patterns/easy-top-down-raglan/. Then I knitted for the large size because the yarn is fingering and my daughter is thin and petite. The pattern calls for 35 stitches for the back neck so I added an extra 10 stitches and cast on 45 stitches for each front side. I cast on a total of 148 stitches to make it divisible by 4. for the 2X2 ribbing. So the raglan set up is: 45pm, 12pm, 35pm, 12pm, 45pm for a cast on of 148. I didn't increase for the front and did only waist shaping on the back and waist of each front. The lace pattern is Yarn over, K2 together across. The length is about 34 inches for a tunic length. I hope this makes sense.
