Inspired by Japanese wisterias in full bloom, the Laceleaf pullover features delicate latticework on the yoke. Knit in Peerie, a 4-ply Merino wool yarn, the lace juxtaposes crisply against stockinette stitch in this lightweight seamless sweater. Dainty yet contemporary, Laceleaf is a versatile piece for seasonal transitions and a satisfying knit.
Note: Be sure to swatch both stitch patterns to ensure proper sizing. Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge.
Size A (for Main Fabric)
Size B (for Yoke Chart and Ribbing)
Due to significant variance among knitters, your Yoke Chart fabric should be swatched and wet-blocked prior to knitting your sweater to determine whether this needle size should be larger, smaller or equal to Size A.
Size C (optional for Tubular Cast On)
Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
*32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (e.g. sleeves).
