Arched Lace Pullover
Skill Level: Intermediate
Elegant, airy & oh so warm. This light-as-a-feather pullover layers nicely to provide warmth without bulk. The body allows for extra room at the hips and tapers gently to the mid chest. The collar can be buttoned up to form a turtleneck or buttoned partially and folded over. It is worked flat, from the bottom up, with side shaping and sleeve shaping. The sleeves are minimally tapered allowing more room at the wrist and a straighter appearance.
The allover lace pattern is memorizable with all WS rows purled. The area requiring your attention is in the lace shaping. (Markers could be used to "mark off" the shaping sections and you have the option of working the sleeve increases into stockinette stitch instead of into the lace pattern.)
