Bluebonnet

BY MARTHA WISSING

Taking inspiration from nature, this lovely pullover features a textured lace front panel and a relaxed, oversized fit.  The front and back of the sweater are worked from the bottom up, and the length is easily adjusted by working additional, or fewer, repeats of the Leaf Lace Pattern.  After seaming the shoulders using the three needle bind off method, stitches are picked up for the 3/4-length sleeves.  Knitting the sleeves from the shoulders down makes it easy to achieve a custom fit.   The pattern is available in three sizes, to fit bust 76-91, 96-117, 122-142 cm ( 30-36, 38-46, 48-56″), and is meant to be worn with approximately 35-56cm (14-22″) of ease.  The sample used a Cotton/Rayon/Alpaca/Nylon/Wool blend.
