Description

Delicate and stylish this sweater is an enjoyable knit with enough details to keep you intrigued.

The body is knit in the round from the bottom up (with the shoulders joined using a 3-needle bind off).  The sleeves are picked up from the armhole and worked down using short rows to create a set-in sleeve.  Gentle waist shaping is created using dart lines on the front and the back and all edging is kept nice and simple with garter stitch.
