An all-over lace sweater can be a beautiful work of art, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. In this pattern, the lace is worked in the round for the body, then in rows for the upper body and sleeves. The 18-stitch repeat of the pattern is maintained when casting on stitches for the sleeves, so you won’t have to do any chart-stitch counting or math to figure out where to start.
