A V-neck pullover with lace up to the empire waistline and side vents. Two V-neck depths, instructions for optional bust darts and lengthen/shorten lines are included. Both the body and sleeves are worked from the bottom up, in the round. The 8 sizes are divided into two sets of instructions with 4 sizes each for clarity.
The “techniques” section contains short instructions on wrap & turn, 3-needle bind-off, and single crochet (for back neck finishing) with web links for further information. Schematics, charts, and written instructions are all included. All measurements are offered both in inches and centimetres.
Worked in 900-1360 yds (825-1250 m) worsted weight yarn, for garment bust sizes of 31 to 48.75 inches (79 to 124 cm), with 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.5 cm) positive ease suggested (sample knit with effectively less than 1″, and it’s a bit too tight to wear over a t-shirt). Works well as a stand-alone garment with the smaller ease, or over tank tops and t-shirts for cooler weather.
70 inches (1.75 m) ribbon is used in waistband.
Lace is worked on the right side only, in a 8-stitch repeat using ssk, k2tog, psso, and yo.
Pattern has been test knit and tech edited.
